"Frank Sinatra was a true hero. And Iíve purposely left out the term ďAmerican HeroĒ, because he was a Hero on the worldsí stage. Sinatra was not simply the Greatest Entertainer of His Time, he championed civil rights when no one else had the guts to. He fought oppression everywhere, at great personal sacrifice. He took positions (that were then), extremely unpopular with a huge majority of the populace. He employed extremely talented writers and playwrights (when no one else would), who were ďblacklisted and blackballedĒ as a result of the efforts of a possible paranoid, and extremely unstable, dangerous accusatory predator, who just happened to find his way onto the floor of the United States Senate. The great majority of these charges were later found to be unwarranted, grounded only in rumor and innuendo, and mostly fabricated.
raised more than one BILLION dollars for the underprivileged, worldwide. True he didnít give his life in battle for his country, but he devoted most of his adult life towards the betterment of his country and its citizens. He gave to all people, regardless of race, color or creed. If this isnít what constitutes a hero, I donít know what does. Heíll always be a hero to me because I spent a good portion of my life simply marveling at his wonderful works."
