Three people I consider heroes

Elon Musk, Robert Kennedy Junior and Franklin Graham are three people I admire the most. Each is of a different political persuasion. Each has a different mission in life. But all three are doing the best they can to make a positive difference in our world.
I was a big fan of Elon Musk, before it became popular to be so. I followed his career from PayPal to Tesla and was fascinated with his meteoric rise and ability to competed with legacy automakers. Before it was fashionable I tooled around in a Tesla, owning one for four years before returning to a gas-powered vehicle.
His recent purchase of Twitter has brought him in to the limelight, but to me, he has always been a hardworking, never say never entrepreneur that has succeeded despite the odds being stacked against him. If you have ever watched the Space X documentary on Netflix you know what I mean. His rockets failed time and again, and he never quit trying, until on his fourth attempt, he succeeded. I don’t doubt he will colonize Mars within the next couple dozen years.
He may be the richest man in the world, but unlike his billionaire peers, he is a man of the people. He regularly tweets with most anyone, and with his Twitter acquisition, he has now become the champion of free speech.
I am impressed with Bobby Kennedy, particularly because he is the single greatest champion of children’s health as chairman of the board for the Children’s Health Defense. In that role he has long advocated that many vaccines cause more harm than good.
Kennedy could have sat back and enjoyed his family’s riches. His uncle was John F. Kennedy, president of the United States and his father was attorney general. But rather than live life in their shadows, Kennedy, as a lawyer and author, is doing his part to change the world.
I have been especially intrigued with his latest book, “The Real Anthony Fauci,” in which he writes 400-pages revealing what a fraud and con-artist Fauci, and his buddy, Bill Gates is. Kennedy claims in the book that Fauci partnered with big pharma to sabotage safe and effective off-patent therapeutic treatments for AIDS and COVID-19.
Whether you agree with him or not, it is a fascinating read. He doesn’t mince words in his claims that Fauci, nor Gates, are heroes, but instead quite the opposite.
What can you say about Franklin Graham? Son of Billy, Franklin has expanded on his father’s mission, particularly as chief executive of Samaritan’s Purse, the worldwide charity, that seems to be onsite wherever a crisis occurs.
Currently they are set up in Ukraine where they are helping thousands of displaced Ukrainians find food and shelter. But if a tornado devastates an area in Alabama, or famine breaks out in Ghana, they will be there as well, on the ground, helping those in need.
Unlike many like charities, Samaritan’s Purse is rated at 98.24% out of 100, for financial disclosure and accountability by watchdog, Charity Navigator. No other charity is higher. Graham and his organization are worth all the praise we can throw their way.
When I grow up, ha ha, I wanna be like these three. I can’t think of a better trio to emulate than Musk, Kennedy and Graham.
