Mike's World View - By Mike Henry

I, along with 25 million other Americans, will miss Rush Limbaugh. He was a part of my daily routine. I would come in from the studio a little after 11am and listen to the first segment of his radio show while Diane fixed lunch.
Rush had a great voice, personality, and was always true to his conservative values. That’s no doubt why he kept his huge audience listening for over 30 years. Sure he said a few things over the years that he shouldn’t have, but that’s understandable. Unlike so many today, he had no hatred or malice in his heart toward political opponents.
He served as a great example for all of us in radio. You can make a difference if you dare to try; just be yourself, be true to what you believe, and carefully explain why. He also showed us, way back in the 90s, how to fight and win against cancel culture. Something we face big time today.
My daughter Danae was recently describing her parents to a friend when she said, “My dad is like Rush Limbaugh, and my mom is like Mother Teresa.” By the way, it’s looking like we’ll be retiring sometime next year and moving to Spokane to be near our kids (Jonnathan and Danae).
Rush liked to say that he was talent on loan from God. His boasting was just a ploy to irritate liberals. It was evident in the end that he was a deeply humble and thankful man, who had his faith in Jesus Christ. I’m so glad that President Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the 2020 State of the Union Address. It was also fun to watch Nancy Pelosi squirm through the whole ordeal.
