J is for Jesus and for Joseph, the Stepfather of God

Alright, here it is- Easter is coming up, and what it all comes down to folks, is we've got a biblical super hero here... You can't take that away from him. But, son of God, Mother of God, somebody gets over looked, every time this story gets retold-

Joseph, the Stepfather of God. Now there was a tough job... probably the reason I like to use the name from time to time for a hero...

Meandering, but the Charles Bronson bit from The Magnificent Seven comes to mind-

"... You think I am brave because I carry a gun; well, your fathers are much braver because they carry responsibility, for you, your brothers, your sisters, and your mothers. And this responsibility is like a big rock that weighs a ton. It bends and it twists them until finally it buries them under the ground. And there's nobody says they have to do this. They do it because they love you, and because they want to. I have never had this kind of courage. Running a farm, working like a mule every day with no guarantee anything will ever come of it. This is bravery. That's why I never even started anything like that... that's why I never will."

and Joseph, of course-
