(Cue Mariah Carey here)

So, I know the discussion of heroes is not an entirely fresh idea but this article certainly made me pause.

For those of you who hate to read links (this is me judging you), here's the basic gist:

According to a recent Harris Poll, Americans ranked this guy as their number one hero--followed by this guy and this guy. Hmmmm....

Also, check out the list of those who dropped in rank over the years. Personally, I'm disappointed she has fallen. Your thoughts?

Finally, for those of you who do not get the title, I offer you this and a big "Where the crap WERE you in 1993?!"

Tgif.

To me, this indicates that America is becoming more secular which is not entirely good news.

However, I am encouraged that America's heroes are shifting from sports figures and movie stars to politicians and religious leaders. I think this means America is stepping out of a fantasy world and begininng to reckon with reality.

We are at a turning point in history for sure.
