What does it mean to “be a man?”
For my husband, being a man means being strong not just physically, but emotionally. It means loving those around you passionately and doing everything in your power to help them. It means seeing something that needs to be done, and doing it. It means being proud of who you are and always trying to be better.
One day, when someone tells my son to “be a man” I sure hope this is what he believes they mean.
