Roll Call For Heroes

Who do you look up to for inspiration and hope?

Is it a parent, teacher, athletic coach, business person, friend, pastor, or a loved one? Is it someone else who doesn’t fall into any of those buckets who possess some traits that are commendable and admirable; ones that may move your soul?

Civilization needs more role models and heroes right now and the bugle is blowing hard for them to step in and step up.

We cannot as humans stay on the present paths we are on. Failure to change directions is unacceptable, irresponsible, and cowardly.

The attributes of heroes are many and it is not my purpose to identify all of them. What does matter is the personal connection and identification with at least one that is uplifting and doable?

Let me throw a few at you that resonate with me:

  1. Courage: the ability for a person to physically and mentally challenge others based on who they are and what they stand for. Some might connect this with bravery.
  2. Compassion: the ability to feel sympathy and sorrow for others who are suffering from a desire to help alleviate their pain.
  3. Selflessness: the ability to have a great deal of concern for others with little regard for self.
  4. Humility: the ability to be humble and to know our place.
  5. Action driven: the ability to take our values and beliefs, setting them in motion, and acting with conviction.

We all have the ability to favorably impact the lives of others whether we fall into the hero classification or not. Let us reflect on who we are and what we value halfway through this week. Who do you look up to for inspiration and hope? Have you inspired one person directly or indirectly?

My friends, please remember this: respect, consideration, and courtesy matter a lot. Treat others fairly, decently, and equally. Consult your moral compasses every chance you get and monitor your progress. You know the battle cry: do your best each day. No one can ask more or less from any of us.

All the best/blessings, Mark
