I’m glad to know that dads like you are on the ground holding other men accountable.

There simply are no words to express the sense of gnawing responsibility many of us feel. I got involved in what is essentially a men’s accountability group a few years ago; and through it I began to understand the depth of our societal failure to raise boys into men of character and integrity, not to mention compassion and mercy. We fail at every turn because we just repeat the same pathology we experienced ourselves.

We have a nation run by adolescent boys trapped in men’s bodies and it’s been that way for virtually our entire history. The road to where we should be and where we are now is long and obscured, and sometimes it makes me feel hopeless.

Anyway, I keep taking up your attention, don’t I? I’ll move along now.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
