I remember back when I was young, people would say, "If you work hard, if you keep honest, some day you could be president."
Our political representatives are a joke.
The social media has no heroes.
Media has no heroes.
The military does. But they are tired and just want to come home.
We have no heroes anymore. No-one to look up to. Politicians are a joke, sports figures are too removed (with multi-million dollar salaries) and are a joke.
Music? Get real.
There are no more role models. Single family homes don't have fathers to look up to. Our culture is a waste-land in terms of heroes.
And god help me, we need a hero right now. We need someone to show the mindless sheep that there is a better way, that there is a light at the end.
Batman is dead.
Superman is dead.
Hope is dead (or dying).
