Just One More Hero is a powerful speech that
will have a huge impact on anyone with children or anyone
who is in a position to influence children. It doesn't
matter what type of event, meeting, or gathering that might
be coming up for you or your group or company. I will bring
to them a message guaranteed to pump them up with all the
right kind of positive energies, hopes, and aspirations.
I am committed to the ideal that a world without
American Champions and Heroes would be a highly vulnerable
world that would soon fall victim to its own apathy and inertia.
But I also believe that, increasingly, too
many American children are falling victim to emotional and
spiritual dehydration in a fast-paced world that too often
robs our available minutes from those most in need of them.
I'll share with them stories of great American families and
how they avoided the "time-snare" and raised healthy,
happy, and successful children. Children destined to be American
champions - bound to be American heroes. Men and women,
boys and girls, children and adults, great Americans all. I
will challenge your audience's pride, honor, and commitment
and compel them to envision greater possibilities for themselves
and for their children.

Excerpts from my Speech...
The greatest mistake anyone
can make is to accept the notion that they cannot influence
the times through which they pass--one person cannot make a
difference. We all suffer from it to one degree or another.
But history irrefutably proves that one person is all that
ever has. One person with a dream. One exceptional man or woman
with a bold new vision of what could be and the strength of
their convictions to overcome any obstacles, face down any
challenges, and summon the necessary strength to see their
visions through to fruition.
Any man who looks into the
eyes of a baby and can still question his life's purpose, is
either blind or a fool. There is no greater receptacle of love
than the heart of a child. Spiritual and emotional dehydration
can be devastating and the tragedy is how easily it can be
avoided or remedied.
many here believe that the greatest aspect of living in America
is the freedom we extend to our citizens? Every hand always goes
up - which always astounds me. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Only God
can grant freedom. America, in its moral construct and brilliance,
took firm steps not to impede freedom. They went further. They
constitutionally guaranteed that freedom and vowed unconditionally
to defend and protect that freedom.
is a nation born of providence with a unique purpose and destiny.
Since its birth we have seen our heroes and champions honor this
covenant with unwavering sacrifice, commitment, and dedication
- which in its absence would have left the world vulnerable to
the designs of evil madmen and oppressive tyrants.
I'm just a dad and what I've done in writing this book
is not come up with some new ingenious formula for success.
Hardly. What I have done is merely pick up and dust off the
very best of our heritage and set it, once again, upon the
family mantle - where it belongs. You'll recognize most of
them and chances are that most of you here are very familiar
with them and have already instilled these qualities in your
So in closing,
and in summary, I would like you to leave with the timeless advice
given to the Tin Man by the Wizard of OZ, as he bestowed upon
him the heart he always yearned for. "Remember, my shiny
friend, it is not how much you love that matters - but rather
how much you are loved... by others.
American champions and heroes aren't unique -
but how we raise them is uniquely American!
"It doesn’t matter
if you’re a mother or a father. This speech hits all the
right emotions and will change forever the way you spend
your time and how you prioritize, or not, the lives of your
children. Powerful and thought provoking!"
