It was sometime in the early 90’s when I first heard Rush. I thought who is this arrogant son of a “B”. You see I was a teacher at the time, teaching outside Olympia Washington. Listening to him pissed me off, but when I have a strong emotional reaction to someone I ask myself why. so I began to listen to him and discovered that what he had to say were backed up by facts. That began my journey listening to Rush. I learned that just because someone has a strong sense of self doesn’t make them arrogant. If they speak truth who cares. Rush was one of those rare people who had brains, compassion for others, loved God and America. He also had the balls to speak about what was really happening even though he was ridiculed. We need more like him. Dear Rush you will be greatly missed.
