Feet hit the ground

So rare it seems that we ever spend any time in touch with reality, with our feet firmly on the ground of truth and marching in a clear and purposeful direction.  No, it is much more common to live our lives with our head in the clouds of distraction from daily life. From our waking moments till we pass out at night we use every tool and resource at our disposal to battle traffic, work, bills... We further depart into TV and movies; tales of heroes defeating dragons or evil doers while the lady is bound and gaged.
That day to day life we spend so much time in. That is not the real world. No, in fact as we allow ourselves to be swept up, the real world is rushing beneath our feet like a bullet train.  Where the real world is heading is determined by those who choose to steer it.
Today, my fellow heroes, our feet hit the ground!  Lady Liberty needs defending!
