Where are the Men of Moral Courage?

Courage comes in two basic forms--physical and moral.  Physical courage is putting your life on the line to achieve some perceived good, such as running in front of a car to save a child, or charging a machine gun nest to prevent it from killing your fellow soldiers.  Moral courage, on the other hand, is standing up for what is right in the face of adversity as well as when no one is looking.

I ask my fellow Americans--where are the men of moral courage?

Where are the men who honor their oath to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign or domestic?

Where are the men who understand there is an essential word between "Duty" and "Country?"

Where are the men who honor the vows to their wives?

Where are the men who stand against the heresies in our Churches?

Where are the men who teach their children Truth instead of leaving them to the ravenous lies spread by the public education system?  Where are the men who stand up and oppose these very same lies in public?

Where are the men who understand that this life is not about them and their own personal glory?

Where are the men who reject earthly treasures for eternal ones?

Where are the men who reject the philosophy of "do as I say, not as I do?"

Where are the men who will choose the harder right over the easier wrong?

Where are the men who will speak the truth in every situation?

America...where are these men?  Have we been cursed with a paucity of them?
At this late hour we need men of moral courage, or all we have been blessed with will be lost.

(I have chosen to use the term 'men' in this discussion to help highlight the recent moral failings in America, which are mostly committed by men.  However, I cannot state strongly enough how America needs every last man and woman of moral courage to stand for what is right and get us back on track with our founding.)
