What fascinates me about America is its people's sense of humor and the way they sublimate a personal victory to a spiritual model for the community.  After making 16 saves against the Belgian team in the U.S's last World Cup match, Howard became something of an American hero. Fans started petitioning on the White House website "We the People" to name Howard as the Secretary of Defense. President Obama said in his weekly address, "Chuck Hagel's got the spot right now, but if there is a vacancy, I promise to think about it."  And Real-life Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told Howard that with some training, he could someday become the real Secretary of Defense.  Who is Tim Howard? He played basketball and soccer in North Brunswick Township High School, New Jersey. His high school yearbook quote was "It will take a nation of millions to hold me back." No one from school is surprised with his awesome performance.  However his fame didn't come easy. He was diagnosed with Tourette's syndrome (spectrum of tic disorders) when he was a child. But he didn't let any obstacles stand in his way. At age 23, he was recruited by Manchester United. He lent his name in NJ center for Tourette's syndrome to make Tim Howard Leadership Academy. It's so much meaningful for the kids to have hero someone who dealt with the same difficulty and survived. He also responsibly advocated for the anti-fur campaign. As you may have noticed the tattoos all over his body, a souvenir from his struggle in "ink not Mink."  What could be more meaningful than doing your best at something you're passionate about? There may be obstacles, but if you stay positive, it makes you that much more resilient in pursuing your goals.
