Stories of American Heroes - Brought to you from the "Home of Heroes" - Pueblo, Colorado

"When I consider Thy Heavens, The Work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou has ordained;
"What is man, that Thou art mindful of him?"

          Psalms 8:3 & 4

God and Country Room

The "God and Country" room is a special place of inspiration at the Hall of Heroes.  It is designed to reflect the courage and faith of American men and women honest enough with themselves to understand that man alone is not enough to meet the challenges of our world, and inspired enough to trust in Someone more powerful than themselves to help them create dreams for the future.

Though such reliance on God is not unique to the United States or any other nation of the world, our country's history and success is rooted in the belief that God has had His hand on the affairs of our country from the beginning.  For all the failures many of the founding fathers and other leaders throughout our Nation's history have had, most have realized in time of crisis the need to pray.  Their failures and faults do not necessarily reflect a lack of faith in God, only their own humanness.  It is this  human nature, so often prone to err, that creates the need within each of us to reach beyond ourselves for the strength of God as we perceive Him.

The purpose of the "God and Country Room" is intended in no way to evangelize or prostelyze, only to inspire.  One need not agree theologically with a great man or woman to respect their faith and accomplishments.  Towards this end you will enjoy stories here of heroes of faith from different backgrounds, religious persuasions, denominations and philosophies.  From the pilgrims who came to our shores seeking freedom of worship to the fiery preacher from Atlanta who dreamed of a Nation that honestly lived up to its self-proclaimed belief in the equality of every man, our country has been shaped by men and women of God.  These are role models we dare not forget, for their own faith, even when different from our own, can only serve to inspire us.

 

It has been said:

"If you don't stand for something.....

.....You'll fall for Anything!"

 

America needs heroes, today more than ever.  As we watch increasing violence threaten our communities, as we watch our young people often falter for lack of something to believe in, something to STAND FOR, we struggle for answers.  Many of these answers can be found in our own history.  We welcome you to enter the "God and Country" room to see how men and women of faith throughout our history, have conquored the problems of their own generations.
