Courage has been defined as "the ability to do something dangerous, or to face pain or opposition, without showing fear."
America has produced a country of courageous people. This has been especially true in times of war, distress and struggle in which "average" people have laid down their comfort, their disagreements and even their lives to fight together for a common good. It has been a key component that has defined this nation as a people who have selflessly given to help their neighbors and those in need—even our enemies.
Fast forward to 2020 and the introduction of COVID. I was in the San Antonio airport this weekend where every 15 minutes a phone number was broadcast for people to report on fellow citizens if they weren't faithfully wearing their mask. We are now encouraged to spy on and report on our neighbors. And, truth has been censored and social distancing and isolation rule from the scepter of fear. All this has changed the language of our nation as it has tried to change the people.
But has it? Certainly not everyone. Because courage will always find a way and will always rise up against injustice and inhumanity. It can be found in the most unlikely places and the most unlikely people who are the unsung heroes.
This past weekend, General Mike Flynn and Tulsa businessman/activist Clay Clark awarded the Courage-19 award at the ReAwaken America Tour in San Antonio, Texas to some of our brave doctors, nurses, parents, teachers, attorneys, firefighters, pastors, sheriffs, business owners and workers who have courageously stood up to the wall of lies and opposition seeking to steal our freedom and silence our voices.
Recipients included well-known and unknown names—all are heroes. Some of the recipients were: Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Jim Meehan, Dr. Judy Mikovits, Attorney Thomas Renz, Sheriff, Alex Villanueva, Senator Rand Paul, Governor Kristi Noem, Rep. Jim Jordan, Firefighter John Knox. There were approximately 100 recipients.
"All of them have paid a price for their courage and stand for freedom. They represent the growing number who are being persecuted for choosing freedom and truth over lies. Those who have determined to do the right thing despite threats against them and who have refused to be silenced. They continue to speak out for the freedom on which this nation was built.
In a recent interview, when I asked Clark the goal of the ReAwaken America Tour, he explained it was essentially two-fold: "First, we believe courage is more contagious than COVID-19. Everyone on the tour firmly believes in Matt 5:9-11, which reads:
"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me."
"The second goal of the tour is to lead America to salvation and back to God," he says.
The two-and-three-day meetings boast experts and key conservative leaders such as General Michael Flynn, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Roger Stone, Canadian Pastor Artur Pawlowski, Mike Lindell, Dr. Alan Keyes, Attorneys Leigh Dundas and Sidney Powell, Sean Feucht, Dr. Stella Immanuel, Dr. Simone Gold, Dr. Richard Bartlett, Pastor Phil Hotsenpiller, Scott McKay and many more. It is a unique blend of patriotism, conservative values, and exalting Christ.
The Tour, which launched 2021 in Tulsa, was so successful it has taken on a life of its own as it has energized Christians and non-Christians alike to stand together for our rights and freedom. What started as a one-time conference, has since spread to Tampa, Fla.; Anaheim, Calif.; Grand Rapids, Mich.; Colorado Springs, Colo. and San Antonio, Texas. A final meeting is scheduled for 2021, for Dallas Dec. 9-11.
As demand and interest have continued, it prompted a decision from General Flynn to continue the tour through 2022 with plans to hold one per month. The first is scheduled for Phoenix, Ariz., in January.
