Perseverance is something that isn’t considered as much these days as it used to be, what with all he participation ribbons and the instant gratification so many people are used to. Hard work is something that is not given the kind of attention and appreciation it truly deserves.

Overcoming adversity through hard work is what we need to bear witness to. Why? Because America needs heroes today more than ever before!

I am not a golf fan — in fact I have rarely ever played the game but I watched with incredible admiration Sunday as Tiger Woods sank a short putt to cement his place even higher in history. Injuries, personal turmoil, and calamity had left his career and his life in disarray. The idea of Tiger ever winning again was dismissed by many. So-called experts relegated him to the history books over and over again.

He was done. Everybody said so. It was settled.

Of course, Tiger wasn’t thinking about the naysayers. He wasn’t hearing the sounds of skeptics or critics. He had blocked them out long ago as he focused on rebuilding his body, then his mind, and finally his heart and soul.

He walked to the final green and he moved like someone who knew exactly what destiny demanded. He leaned over and sank the putt. His heart flooded with emotion and joy. He succeeded after so few thought it possible.

He believed.

Tiger embraced and epitomized the true spirit of America. Overcoming the odds, out-working everyone else and returning to the podium as a champion. It doesn’t matter if you like golf or not — the timeless values of dedication, hard work and faith defined the day.

When it was over, he sought his family and embraced them like a man who had overcome it all and been healed. Our nation could use that kind of healing spirit today too!
