We Must Listen, Learn, And Act
Tim Schmidt
"I am more afraid of an army of one hundred sheep led by a lion than an army of one hundred lions led by a sheep." -Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord

We’ve seen our troops mindlessly shot down in our own hometowns.

We’ve seen our flag burned, hated, and disgraced.

We’ve seen the violent deeds of countless Muslim extremists, their soulless and cowardly acts of war and hatred…actions that can only be described as pure evil.

And we’ve seen little from our nation’s leadership to convince us that we have any political, moral, or economic support or direction.

When things go wrong, when the world comes crashing down around us, people look to our leaders for wisdom, for guidance, and for a sense of what's right and what needs to be done in these situations. It's in these times, especially, that true leaders of real character will reiterate that two wrongs don't make a right, that injustice doesn't breed justice, and that disorder doesn't result in order.

And I think that you’d probably agree with me that we haven’t seen a whole lot of true leaders lately.

Here in our country, particularly of late, our “leaders” have shown us that they are unqualified to solve issues (or sometimes even address them) or bring people together. They have done little except to prove that they are incapable of true leadership.

And rather than unite us, they have ripped us apart.

They have become the biggest part of the problem rather than the biggest proponent of the solution.

And when the people in charge condone chaos or sit idly in silence, or do only what works best for themselves or for their agendas, they do nothing but intensify conflict and destruction. It's disgraceful.

Shame on all of them.

Undoubtedly, the topic of leadership is not a new one for me. I have always admired strong leaders. And by strong, I mean the kind of leaders who lead by serving and by doing and by setting examples, not the kind who live on a power trip or step all over others to achieve their goals.

And I have learned a lot by watching great leaders—and by watching bad ones. Great leaders can be found in all sorts of places, from the Sunday school room to the martial arts dojo. But a leader should not just be a title, given to anyone and everyone. It should be an action, earned by those who truly deserve it, by those who can use their position to help, guide, and inspire others.

As we watch the situations unfold around us, and as we gear up for a time to elect new leaders, I encourage you to start making personal and professional decisions to be good leaders in your own homes, workplaces, and communities. We must discuss, deliberate, and debate, but most of all, we must listen, learn, and act.

I hope and pray we will one day soon have a great leader in our country. America needs it. You and I need it.

Take Care and Stay Safe,
