Seven Most Important Lessons my Heroes Taught Me
By Jonathan Sprout
Since 1994, I’ve immersed myself in the lives of 40 of America’s greatest heroes. I’ve travelled the United States interviewing historians and visiting hero sites. I’ve read hundreds of books by and about my heroes and listened to countless teachers, parents, students, and administrators tell me about their favorite heroes.
A few months ago, I was honored with an opportunity to speak about my work. The act of writing my speech over a three month period enabled me to recognize seven important lessons my heroes have taught me.
I’ll share them with you over the course of the next several weeks, one lesson at a time. Please respond with your insights!...
