What a wonderful video! Thanks Patrick
Ahhhh "Why aren't there heroes like yesterday's heroes? (And whatever happened to melody?")Wait! There's Patrick Madrid! Yeehaw!!!
Excellent...two giants still relevant today, but sadly, sorely missed! True blue Americans
Two of my favorite heros... sorry that I didn't appreciate both of them more when they were alive. Although I never met either, I do so admire them both.
My son is only 6 years old, but he is a big fan of John Wayne (...and he knows the Lord's Prayer!).I wish there were more movie stars and old-fashioned heroes around like that, but at least we still have their movies and clips like this to learn from, and to show our kids.
On the way home for Christmas, I stopped at John Wayne's birthplace in Winterset, IA, and gained a better appreciation for the actor (and deathbed Catholic) in those old westerns I watched with my father.I blogged about the trip, if anyone's interested:http://sethnaser.blogspot.com/2010/01/impromptu-pilgrimage.html
