I learnt when I first held my son 17 years ago what the true essence of manhood was. It is gentleness, compassion. The truly great men in history, the ones who changed the world were like this. Jesus,Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Jr., were all men of peace yet had a profound effect on history. Even the great warriors realized that true strength lies in love. Yet the strength to defeat enemies was still there, if not more powerful as they fought to help others, protect and serve, rather than to force their power onto others.
First time and I don't know what I'm doing. I have a lot on in my mind and seem to be entering a new stage in my life where I'm doing things I have previously said I would never do. This being one of them. The question I ask myself is why do I find myself doing this? Rambling on into the internet. This should be interesting.
