Better Than Obama #05: Mufasa
“I’m only brave when I have to be.” —Mufasa to Simba, about bravery
In the Disney film The Lion King, Mufasa and his mate, Sarabi, are Simba’s parents. As ready to play as he is to instruct, Mufasa guides young Simba with a voice as golden as his magnificent mane. Strong, brave and wise, Mufasa is a true leader whose courage comes from a great, calm certainty about who he is and how he fits into the great Circle of Life. That said Mufasa has something of a temper and isn’t afraid to use it when the situation warrants. He wields his power wisely and perhaps gives Simba the best advice that any father can give a son: “Remember Who You Are.” Quite often, I truly feel that President Obama has forgotten who HE is, who WE are, and WHAT America is to become. Perhaps if he’d listen to his Heavenly Father and do a course correction he could get us back on track. Sadly, I doubt he will. I am confident that Mitt Romney knows who he is and believes in what we are. For reminding us of who we are, Mufasa for President!
