Rush Limbaugh – A Tribute book review: “Stories From 30 Years of Listening to Rush Limbaugh” (April 26, 2022)

My Passion

(Rush often advised, “Follow Your Passion”)

“O December 19, 2016, a caller shared an inspiring story about how the Rush Revere books changed the life of a young boy growing up in one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in Fort Worth, Texas. According to the caller, to break the cycle of generational poverty it is important that a child has a passion. Rush responded with this:

I happen to agree with you about passion. You know, using myself as a personal example, I knew when I was 8 that I loved radio. I knew when I was 8 I wanted to be on radio. Who cares why, although it is interesting, but I'm not gonna waste the time. I knew. And ever since I’ve wished that everybody could find their passion because when you find your passion, that becomes your energy source and that becomes what you commit yourself to.

On May 2, 2020, two listeners called in to tell Rush how he inspired them to succeed. One of the callers, a school teacher turned spine specialist, explained why he made the career change: “I was a schoolteacher, and you talked about following your passion and how you’ve never worked a day in your life because you love what you did.” Here’s how Rush responded:

I love hearing stories like that. I really do. Because, see, it was in you all the time. This passion was in you all the time. You just needed a little kick that told you you could do it.


I had a passion when I was young but gave up on it for all the wrong reasons. I’m retired now and decided it wasn’t too late to follow Rush’s advice, to follow my passion. So, that’s what I did for six months. I lived in Israel and traveled all over the country, taking pictures as an amateur photographer. I returned to the United States on May 1, 2022, and began work on Bible Land Images, my new website with over 15,000 photographs, videos, and aerials to work with as I endeavor to complete the site. In the meantime, I release new pages weekly. The first complete version of the site will be ready by Christmas 2022. Below are a few sample photos from my collection. Above is a picture of me standing in the Roman theater at Tell Beit Shean, Israel.
