Wanted: A Great Leader
I know it is extremely difficult right now, to think about the future of our country. Even the most rabid neo-cons of the Republican Party are starting to realize the extent of the Bush administrations incompetence. It seems like every day, there is some new scandal or blunder that adds to a mounting litany of transgressions. But let’s put all that aside right now and think about where we are headed, after George Bush and company, finally leave office. Our history is filled with examples, of the rise of great leaders, when they are needed the most. Many times these leaders have come from obscure or even humble backgrounds. Everyone would agree that our country will need a leader to heal and unite us. Everyone would probably also agree that our country will need a leader to alter our direction and help us solve the enormous problems of the 21st century. The very survival of our republic may depend on this leader. My question is: Is that great leader out there, waiting for his/her calling?
