What is a hero? What is a saint? The bar for what defines a hero and what defines a saint in America has been set so low that we are now assigning the titles to people who are the exact opposite. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Daunte Wright and Ashli Babbitt have had the title of heroes and saints bestowed upon them for the bad decisions they made that led to their demise. The media, politicians and their corrupt agenda are complicit in the misuse of these terms and use the death of these individuals to further divide the American people and advance their careers and turn a profit.
