I agree Debbie, we NEED heroes. People that our kids can look up to as they grow. I'm not that narcissistic to want my children to have me as their hero, but I do want them to have many heros, both male and female... not to 100% emmulate but rather to pattern their actions and reactions after and from many sources.
Granted their selections nowadays are very, VERY limited, I shutter to think my two little daughters will have some half baked, present day musician as a hero. I think that is where I step in and make sure that while society shows them the "wrong type" of hero, I can show them and do show them all the time, the different museums, etc. the positive heroes. I could spend hours writing on this subject but figure it would eventually ruin my reputation... so therefore I am finished... laugh
