ROLE MODELS! HAVE THEY GONE BY WAY OF THE DINOSAUR? OR ARE THEY STILL AMONG US?
How many times!
Have we heard “We need role models for our children!”
As I recall!
The only role models there were.
Were the fictitious kind/type.
Those who we have seen on TV.
No “REAL” one’s.
If! we truly want role models for our children!
The only real one’s are from the past.
Two come to mind.
Abe Lincoln & FDR!
Even past Presidents!
I have found even Abe Lincoln to be fascinating!
His life & times even to me is even more interesting.
Because how he grew up.
It can be called “Humble beginnings!”
He took studying and work seriously.
Self-taught, self-made man that he was.
A man with moral character, integrity, stood strongly for what he believed in.
He did not water down his words he told like it is!
There was no gray areas!
It was either right!
Where are the real role models?
Few (If any!) & far between us!
I know there are others.
But Lincoln & FDR are the “REAL” role models!
