I wrote the piece below in dedication to Ron Paul and every other hero shot down by the Mass Media Machine...


Why must you vilify our heroes, now more than ever before? Is it because the path to the hero is too hard? Are you so fed up with your own mediocrity that you must bring those with superior talent and drive down to the ground to grovel at your feet?

I can hear the collective cry in the streets and it’s not a new one...

In years past we heard the trumpet roar, “Who is John Galt?” from a woman who saw all too quickly what the world was turning into.

My instinct instructs me to propel my children to greatness of any kind, but what I see around me tells me different.

A society bent on the destruction of the human soul.

How can I tell them to strive for the best, when the best are no longer admired; only beaten down and admonished by the inept masses.

STOP NOW, before they go away and all you have left is yourselves to destroy!

PEOPLE, listen to me! Change the collective cry to a mighty yawp that bellows…

“You will not destroy the hero in man!”

You mustn’t!
You mustn’t…

You mustn’t.

You tell your children to strive for greatness because that is what the human spirit is supposed to do.

Don't worry about who admires whom, or who is in the headlines.

You do what is right because it is the right thing to do. Stop worrying about everyone else.

I WILL DECIDE IF SHOULD NOT WORRY ABOUT MY AMERICAN BRETHREN ONLY WHEN THEY START TO THINK CLEARLY FOR THEMSELVES!

Thank you for your interjection, nonetheless...

You've got to start thinking clearly yourself before you can assume you have the ability to worry about others doing so.

You're a worry-wart.

Worry less... I agree... I do, but my clarity is crystalline and bright. Time will tell for both of us.
