This quote clearly shows his view on leadership and how one can only truly lead when one understands how things work and fit together by experiencing it yourself first. To ensure lasting change it’s important to understand where society stands and goes on to quote:
“But the health of a society can be measured by how often and how meaningfully its people are able to reach that higher plane, to live lives bigger than they are.”
John Kasich also has a strong view about the views of others, understanding that it stems from their own personal experiences and says:
“We have to be tolerant of other people’s points of view; we have to be able to disagree without being disagreeable, without claiming that we have a monopoly on the truth.”
However, to inspire the nation one has to tackle issues head-on, showing determination, selflessness and to not be afraid to make the right choices, instead of the popular choices as seen by his quote on this:
“If there’s nothing heroic about how you approach your time in office, you can’t expect to be held up as any kind of hero to your nation’s young people.”
His views on religion and its role is also clear as he states:
“We put up a kind of spiritual firewall and make a conscious effort to shut out the headlines because our (Bible) discussions are meant to be timeless.”
On August 24, President Donald Trump and wife Melania spent time at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital and wanted to learn more about the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio, a nonprofit which centers around support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children.
The visit falls in line with a shared philosophy with John Kasich about understanding what the needs of constituents are and why, to see on ground level what is going on, and by doing this creating a better understanding of their needs and how to help the nation grow.
A highlight of the visit to the Children’s Hospital in Ohio centered around a little boy currently fighting health issues of chronic kidney disease, bilateral vesicourethral reflux, and hydronephrosis. 8-year-old Ashton Zari is also an avid writer, even at his young age, and upon hearing about the President’s visit he wanted to share a book he has written in person.
His mother Amanda Zari went about assembling hospital and presidential staff in the hope of making Ashton’s wish come true.
It all came together and Ashton got to share his book, ‘How I Became A Superhero’ with the President and First Lady Trump, the book serves as an encouragement for medically vulnerable kids.
They were full of praise and even enquired when he would be publishing his next book. Touching and inspiring the lives of youth, not just in the hospital, but everywhere.
