The New Breed Of Heroes

By Evan Sanders

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

The world we live in can be tough to live in at times. While it does nurture us all, it's hard to ignore the fact that it can tear us apart at times.

But it isn't our world that is as vicious as the people who walk upon it. Every single time someone tries to rise there are thousands working against them to see that they fall. These individuals come out in hoards with the intent to sink their teeth into "the lights" back and tear him or her to shreds.

It's unfortunate that our society is based upon gossip and bringing people down. What ever happened to supporting a cause and making the best out of things? No matter the movement, the cause, or the message, the wolves eventually find their way and attempt to bring these everyday heroes down. It's inevitable. It's to be excepted.

But it's time for a new generation of people who are willing to take a stand for others.

We need lions. Lions? Yes, men and women who are willing to root themselves firmly in their core values and principles and not compromise on them. We need individuals who are willing to stand for others greatness and live lives in such a way that inspire the hearts and minds of those around them.

When the lions rise from the darkness, we will have a great light in this world.

But why is this important?

Because as a society we have lost our ability to believe in anything. It's not really our fault that every single time someone comes up in the world they fall for one reason or another. But if we have someone who understands that they aren't perfect and who doesn't attempt to be, couldn't that change the game?

What we truly need is someone who is willing to admit defeat and openly accepts the fact that it is part of the process. And, despite falling, they bring themselves back time and time again to their purpose of bettering the world and the people in it.

It's time there are people who take a stand for something greater than themselves.

It's the time of the lion. It's time for the extraordinary.

Calling all new heroes.
