Art imitates life.
When we had heroes in the real world there were also superheroes on television, movies, video games, toys, and more.
But alas leadership in our times has seriously fallen short.
Who is there to really look up to as a model for us to respect and follow?
It seems like everywhere these days we are confronted by:
– Failing leadership
– Poor decision-making
– Party politics
– Fraud, waste, and abuse
– Bullying and sexual harassment
– Bribery and kleptocracy
– Big time narcissism
There are few if any heroes these days!
It’s sad for us as well as for our children.
I hope we see Batman and Superman and other superheroes again: strong in the physical sense but primarily a symbol for strength of character/integrity and for the fight of good over evil in this world.
The void is painful for our times and is going to impact our near term future as well. 😉
