The Hero We Need In Our World

By Evan Sanders

A lion doesn't concern itself with the opinion of sheep. Game Of Thrones, George R.R. Martin

We live in a pretty vicious world.

Each time an individual rises in this world there are 100 people making an attempt to bring him down. They come out in packs with their piercing jagged teeth looking for ways to destroy anything they can sink into... and often, they really are pretty successful in doing it. It's horrible what happens to people in this day and age who are trying to do something in this world. It doesn't matter if it's positive even, the wolves will always find a way. I guess this is the way that it's usually been? Maybe it'll always be this way.

But we need a new sort of hero.

We need a lion who does not concern itself with the opinions of those sheep who've never stepped into and failed in the arena. That's the kind of hero we need. Not someone that was born great, but a man or woman who built themselves from the ashes in the abyss and who will consistently take a stand for what they have a belief in and what they adore.

Wouldn't that give the people something to root for? I believe as a society we are obsessive about perfect figures - if that be a body or a type of personlity. We idealize this concept of perfection and yet there really isn't any such thing. What we actually need is someone who admits deep imperfection and celebrates it. And, in spite of that defect, tries to grow each day and bring light into the world.

We actually need someone who will rise above all the rubbish and take a stand for something bigger than just wealth, sex, drugs, and so on. We need an ordinary man or woman - ready to be extraordinary in faith, love, and compassion.
