Guiding Light

Many of us men who grew up in the 1980's know and remember G.I. Joe:  A Real American Hero.  I make the distinction between which G.I.Joe because the ones that have come about in recent years have been hardly worth watching.  The show I think is something that has a place in America today it starts with the title.  These soldiers were not fighting to stop some hidden agenda they were fighting for America.  A line from the theme song goes as follows--It's purpose, to defend human freedom against Cobra-a ruthless, terrorist organization determined to rule the world.  So the team was purely designed to defend human freedom.  Isn't that what all young men should strive to do.  The public Service Announcements at the end of the show are great to watch even to this day.  When most children's shows fill up commercials with what to buy or what other junk to watch this show gave us a positive message at the end.  So if you have young boys in your house you could do worse than letting them watch this show.
