His example is a testament that no matter how accomplished you are, it's not really all because of you. He also touches on entrepreneurship with a purpose and finding joy in seeing change in people's lives.

113: Liberty: A Beacon Of Hope

113: Liberty: A Beacon Of Hope

As Americans, we have a civic duty and responsibility to protect the freedoms that this country was founded upon. At its core, this original foundation is based upon the equality of all humans - the belief that every human being is created in the image of God, meaning that everyone has worth and value that cannot be taken away. Yet, it’s also an understanding that we are fallen humans and capable of much evil just as much as we are capable of incredible good. This two-fold view is what made America different from every prior form of government. However, in our current society, this freedom and original foundation rests in a perilous place as we have begun to spend all our energy pinpointing the flaws and finding ways to discredit others instead of admiring the good and praising the heroic. Don’t turn a blind eye to the hurt, pain, and injustice of our nation and our world. In this episode, Thane Marcus Ringler shifts the focus on liberty and equality for all as a beacon of hope.
