|The Eagle Has Landed
|Let Us Now Teach The Children!
People Hall of Fame is a non-profit organization with
the mission to give recognition to people who show love and concern for their fellow man. We take
stories of Good Samaritanism, Neighborism and Patriotism, to show the importance we place on people who display
these noble traits.
George Washington wrote to his troops at Valley Forge: "Let us therefore animate and encourage one another, a free man
is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth". This is our mission- to animate and encourage our children of these
important things in life. Through stories of good citizenship, we teach and model these qualities that makes America a better
place. Let us leave them the legacy that Real Heroes are all around us. They are people who show love, care & concern
for their fellow man.
children are the living messengers we send to other people in a different time-a time we will never
see. We will send stories of Good Samaritanism, Neighborism and Patriotism into the future showing those unseen friends
that we treasure unselfishness, responsibility and hope.

The Founder: My name is Jim Roten. I am a retired truck driver. In the early 80's GOD gave me this wonderful
passion to start a Hall of Fame for Ordinary People who do extra-ordinary things. In 1986
I filed for and received a Non-Profit Declaration for America's People Hall of Fame. I worked at it part time, using mainly
my own money until 2005. I then filed and received a 501-C3 Public Charity Declaration. I now plan to
devote as much time as needed to move this regalia to the next level. I now need to seek sponsorship, both individual &
corporate donations of money, goods and/or services.
With your help, I envision this endeavor to be a
Jewel in America's Crown.

wife Alice has donated 14 gallons or 112 units of blood. Together they have donated over 296

CHOOSE YOUR HERO'S WISELY
When we choose to make someone our hero, you are giving him or her a
precious and valuable gift. Just how much do you know about a person? Do they really deserve the gift you are considering
giving them? How much thought do you put into making this decision, if any?
Too often we make sports, entertainment people our hero without giving any thought to, do they deserve
the this gift! More often than not, if you really knew them, you find they have little or nothing in common with you. You
may think twice about your decision to give them the gift of Hero.
We might think about choosing a parent, family member, pastor, sunday school teacher, friend, neighbor to be our
hero. President George W. Bush said "GOD was his hero." My wish is not to tell you who to choose. I only want to
encourage you to know who you're giving the gift too.
Be sure to get in touch so I know you're out there!
