Tears of Joy

February 9, 2017

Once upon a time, the USA recognized and rewarded our citizens who dedicated their efforts to improve themselves and our country.  Steve Reeves felt compelled to improve his physique and innovated a unique method of training with a focus on nutrition.  As a Middle School kid, I admired him and enjoyed his adventure movies.  He looked how a young guy would imagine a super hero should look.  I devoured all of the TARZAN books of Edgar Rice Burroughs.  I wished Hollywood would have cast Steve Reeves in that role.

I see our country is walking toward the light!  It is alright to admire individual success and outstanding achievements.  We do not need to feel shame by being too successful!  Children can look up to our heroes and heroines!  We are a nation of heritage and history that shows our direction ahead.  Donald J Trump has achieved far beyond the average success story.  He has overcome struggles and failures during dismal economic times.  He did not sit and cry, but his resurgence offered reason for all to hope.

Both of my sons are enthusiastic advocates of hard work plus embrace physical excellence.  Both of them are students of nutrition and strenuous physical training.  They are part of a national trend embraced by Millennials.  Mountain climbing, snow boarding, playing hockey, water skiing, and resistance training are strenuous pursuits that develops mind and body.  Armchair critics who pretend they can keep up the pace of my sons and their buddies are kidding themselves.

Critics of the USA need to look around at our Millennials who expand our heritage of heroics.  They have survived in their early working years the worst economic climate since The Depression.  They climbed out of the rubble and are climbing ahead hard.  We have a president who recognizes the regulations and red tape that restrict our growth.  Politicians who are still living in the last century and last Millennium are crying and wailing that they sky is falling as ancient gods are being toppled now.  My tears are tears of joy in celebration.  My sons and their generation will take the USA to new heights and new business.  I do not know what and how they will innovate, but I enjoy watching their efforts.

      His tour in Iraq was in green zone, and he used a beat up truck from a suicide bomber they killed before he could blow it up. He drove folks in and out to airport so snipers would not use an army vehicle as target. He left wearing sergeant stripes.
