They are looking in their Facebook feed, their newspaper, Hollywood, basically everywhere except the mirror. The problem is, most people on the “right” thought they had one already, Donald J. Trump! He was the first cultural icon, a billionaire, a coastal elite that walked away from the cocktail party crowd to stand up against evil and fight on their behalf! Conservatives had their very own Batman!
The dictionary defines a hero as a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. What's interesting about that list is that we all possess the ability to be a hero! It does not mention the ability to fly, shoot spider webs, or even be a billionaire! It’s courageous actions that inspire outstanding achievements, and who is capable of courageous actions? ALL OF US! The cool thing about being courageous and making powerful decisions is that it’s a lot like parachute jumping. One only needs about three seconds of actual courage, and then gravity takes care of the rest!
I personally believe that President Trump’s role as our hero is not yet complete, but that is not the point. His most powerful feet was not in standing up to those that look down on the middle class and those that often shower after work as well as before. He showed us what one person can accomplish if they align their actions with their beliefs, roll up their sleeves, and stop living for the approval of others.
What we need today is not for President Trump to fly onto the scene and solve 80 million of our problems, we need 80 million AmeriCANS to step forward and solve one problem!
The hero your family and community needs lives inside your mirror and is waiting for you and your three seconds of bravery.
