It would be easy to dismiss this sad story as that of just another egocentric celebrity athlete who couldn't control himself. But its worth our stopping and thinking about what we as men (gay, straight, or whatever) stand for.
With all our focus on our CSA and recovery, we forget that there's more to life than that. Love, caring, compassion, helping others, making the world a better place, being there for someone in need. None of it sounds very "manly", but at the end of it all, its all we leave behind us in this world.
"And God only knows
God makes his plan
The information's unavailable to the mortal man
We're workin' our jobs
Collect our pay
Believe were gliding down the highway
When if fact we're slip slidin' away"Paul Simon
