Great Americans: Providing Role Models for America's Children's founder Matt Daniels did not have an easy time growing up on welfare in a dangerous neighborhood in New York City. He credits his rising above his circumstances to earn a law degree and a Ph.D. to the role models he had as a child.

And, as he explained to Nancy Brown and me on our BlogTalkRadio show, that's why he started -- to provide role models of men and women in uniform -- military, police, fire -- to encourage America's children. offers the opportunity for anyone to upload to the site a video of someone you wish to honor as a role model. You need only go to and the upload button is in the top right-hand corner.

Listen to our interview of Matt Daniels now to be inspired to participate in this amazing project. And then go to and participate.
