On a recent trip to a large mid west city, I made an observation about people, and people or "characters" after whom they seem to model their lives.
In other words, it made me wonder about their Heroes.
You dress like your Hero. You act like your Hero. You talk like your Hero. You take your Hero's values as yours.
Look around! Look at numbers of people who sport more tatoos than hairs on their head.
Hear them talk? Slurring their words, and using gutter slang instead of proper use of the english language.
Look at their baggy pants, hoodies and wonder where their lost their belts?
So, just who are their Heroes?
Punks, criminals, gang bangers, rap artists.
What kind of life, will they live, with this kind of Hero? A loser's life. Waiting for someone to "show them respect". And then, they be be angry when they get no respect. Maybe they will play the knock out game. Or maybe they will just randomly shoot someone. Anything to gain respect. But they deserve only contempt!
After all, they are the ones who made the choice.
And that choice has led to All of the wrong Heroes.
