...and how do you recognize him when he shows up?
This is a question I was asked quite recently.
It's certainly complicated, but I think the answer lies in
how he behaves when the going gets tough.
How he treats the weakest and most frail in our society.
If he stops what he's doing, no matter what that is...
If he puts his needs aside to merely ask the question..."what can I do?"
If he put other needs or wants before his own...
then, in my book, he is one of the good guys.
I married one of the good guys, so I know first hand...
I have men-friends who's phone numbers I give to my kids and say...if you can't reach me, phone them. All you will have to say is "Come"..."I need money"..."help" and I know they will respond...no questions asked.
Sadly, this week, I have seen a sweet, young, vulnerable girl fall victim
to one of the bad guys.
I've said it before, I'll say it again, especially to this younger generation...
Men...it's time to man-up...be one of the good guys!
