Assault On Traditional Values

Everyone wants to be a hero, strong and fearless. Yet we are deeply flawed misguided people by nature and design. I argue that we can all be heroes. We have the strength already deep inside, but to see it, we must first change some of our thought processes, institutional programming and preconceived notions.

Anyone who is familiar with my blog, knows that I find inspiration in song lyrics and this will be no different as we explore, Martina McBride’s, “In my daughter’s eyes”, written by James T. Slater, for clues to happiness and fulfillment. An aside, this song is about daughters, but keep in mind that this includes sons as well, if not more so, as little boys look to their mother as a roadmap to the kind of life they should pursue as grown men and the kind of family they will create.

In my daughter's eyes,
I am a hero,
I am strong and wise,
And I know no fear,
But the truth is plain to see,
She was sent to rescue me,
I see who I want to be,
In my daughter's eyes


Anyone who has had children knows how true this verse is. Our children see us as superheroes that can do no wrong. Imagine having a house full of these amazing little people, your own tiny fan club for the rock star you were born to be. The song continues, “But the truth is plain to see. She was sent to rescue me. I see who I want to be, in my daughter’s eyes”. And it is so true that those of us, who were traversing dark paths prior to having children, know that children do save us and give us a guide for who we want to be and who we can and should be.


In my daughter's eyes,
Everyone is equal,
Darkness turns to light,
And the world is at peace,
This miracle God gave to me,
Gives me strength when I am weak,
I find reason to believe,
In my daughter's eyes.


The chorus continues to explain the peace and light that is seen through the eyes of innocence and how inspiring that can be. It truly does give us strength when we are weak and give us reason to believe that the world can be a better place. They give us hope.


And when she wraps her hand around my finger,
How it puts a smile in my heart,
Everything becomes a little clearer,
I realize what life is all about,
It's hanging on when your heart is had enough,
It's giving more when you feel like giving up,
I've seen the light. It’s in my daughter’s eyes.


Children give us clarity about the purpose of life and stamina to dig deep and find reasons to continue when you feel like giving up. We all feel hopeless at times. Children let us see purpose when there was none and light in the darkest of days.



In my daughter's eyes,
I can see the future,
A reflection of who I am and what will be,
And though she'll grow and someday leave,
Maybe raise a family,
When I'm gone I hope you'll see,
How happy she made me,
For I'll be there,
In my daughter's eyes.

My children grew up and I hope they honestly see how they made me happy, gave me purpose and truly saved me from myself. I wish I could have been there more when they were little. I missed baseball and soccer games because of work. I missed holidays and choir concerts. We can’t change the past. But I have never heard of anyone, when looking back on their life, regret not spending more time at work.

My fear for the future is that these values are being lost. With Planned Parenthood promoting abortion as safer than childbirth for some patients, the Femi Nazi movement, Gender Identity politics as well as main stream media and the public school system indoctrination and promotion of alternative lifestyles, one has to wonder how many people will fail to find the happiness, peace and purpose that having children could bring them.

There is a war against the Traditional Lifestyle. And we must wonder why this has occurred. If you look to Agenda 21 and the Georgia guide stones, you can see that there is a real drive to depopulate the Earth to “sustainable” levels. Is this why we see the push to discourage reproduction and traditional lifestyles?
