Experiences and Passion (first draft)

Abraham Lincoln and George Washington were two of the greatest United States of America President's. Their greatness is not only because of their brilliance and talents for leadership, but  because their successes were founded from their personal experiences and passion for changing things in order to make this country a
great nation of men and women ruled by law and order, fairness and justice and great prosperity for the majority of the people. 

The 18th and 19th centuries had witnessed brilliance from people who have no formal education or an Ivy League status. Unlike at the end of the 19th century we have witnessed many  people who are leading our countries towards the 21st century were the product of Ivy League mentoring and tutelage. FDR, JFK, Bill Clinton, George Bush Jr., Barack Obama and surrounded by a phalanx  of Ivy Leguers. They have the qualifications and experiences, but one nagging question is, do they have the passion and humility of Jesus Christ as a leader and catalyst ? Will it be fair to compare them with Jesus Christ ? Will I do justice to them if I say, they are trying ?  Or not trying ?

Many people in the United States claims to be followers of Jesus Christ. But, are they practicing and applying the passion and experiences of Jesus Christ to reach out to others, to help, and care with no strings attached ? Why are there so many poor people today despite of our advancement and technological success ?  Are we missing the point ? Experiences and the passion to serve others without reservations and other conditions ? The experiences achieved through humility and passion emanating from our sincere hearts.
