Disturbing the Peace

My heroes have always been cowboys, just not the old western type, but the mavericks, the risk takers, the crusaders, the impracticable, the crazy ones, and the seriously politically incorrect. Those who are told over and over again by some authority they are dead wrong, or it is too soon, or people won’t change. Heros like Martin Luther King, Jr., Ghandi, Darwin, Mandela, Churchill, and Orwell. Those who had a messianic belief in something greater than themselves and willing to risk it all to see it done. Those who had the personal power and conviction to lead a movement, to stand up to authority, and to thumb their nose at the government. The courage to challenge the status quo.
