Episode #24 Earned Americanism
Originally appeared at http://www1.play.it/audio/life-matters-with-john-st-augustine/
When Nate Boyer caught the cover of TIME Magazine with images of a faraway land called Darfur, he was moved to take action which led him to a serious shift in perspective. Furthering his committment to the concept of “earning his Americanism” he walked off the street and made the cut to become a Green Beret and served tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He would go on college at the age of 29 and with no prior football experience became the longsnapper for the Texas Longhorns and is knocking on the door of the NFL. His message is clear. Life is for the living and the giving, not just for the taking.
