Patriotic Moms are urgently needed in America today.
We have a powerful message and we need to become eloquent messengers.
And we need to help our kids become educated and articulate about things that matter.
Sometimes it seems like lots of news gets posted here, but it's vital for us to understand the issues that have an impact on the future of our country. It's important to for us to learn and teach constitutional solutions to today's challenges.
This interview with Marco Rubio and Jon Stewart is a great example. Senator Rubio knows his message and is a skilled messenger. He is articulate without becoming abrasive. He can disagree without becoming disagreeable. He's a respectful listener AND a courageous advocate. He's serious without taking himself too seriously, and he has a disarming sense of humor.
And we can learn a few things about advocacy by watching Jon Stewart too. Although I often disagree with his political perspective, he's a masterful messenger. We don't have to agree with him (or Marco) on every point for them to be models of eloquent advocates for us and our kids.
One useful way to prepare ourselves and our kids to be effective messengers is to watch interesting interviews (many are available here on PatrioticMoms.com and other places online) with pen and paper in hand and take notes about the ideas we resonate with, the things that are effective, and what could be improved.
If our notes are kept together in a notebook or file folder, they can become a useful reference for us.
Who knows when we, and our children, might have an opportunity to be a voice that can make a difference in today's world?
I hope you enjoy this dynamic interview!
