“Growing up in the 1960’s and early 1970’s in Pittsburgh, I was fortunate to see the many quality westerns that were playing on TV at the time-both new ones and re-runs of the older shows from the 1950’s. Those shows were true classics- “Bonanza”, “Have Gun Will Travel”, “Gunsmoke”, “The Rifleman”, “Wagon Train” and many more. There was a code of honor that ran through all the best shows and movies. I learned many valuable lessons from the heroes of those westerns that played on Saturday afternoons and the late night shows. Lessons like how to try to have courage when faced with seemingly insurmountable obstacles and the importance of fairness and honesty. I realized that anything worth having is worth working for and that sometimes you may have to fight to protect your loved ones and your liberty. I learned that your integrity is worth more than all the riches in the world. And yes, I learned that we make mistakes as we’re not perfect, but that the important thing is to try to admit when we’re wrong, own up to it and move on. There was one cowboy that personified these qualities more than others. This was a man who believed in the individual, this country, and its ideals. A man who, in his public and private life, set the marker that the rest of us try to measure ourselves by. I’m still re-learning those lessons and attempting to pass them on to my own children. I often fall far short of that standard, but I’ll keep on trying.”
