When I first joined up at MS I became fixated on how new men kept coming behind me. At times it can be overwhelming to realize how many people are effected by abuse. Along the way you also start to see that people heal and regain their footing.
Guys like Brandon, Eric, Mike, and Kevin are going through those first hard steps of clearing out the poison right now. As much as it hurts it also heals you somehow.
Others like Gabriel and Nick are slugging it out this week refusing to let childhood abuse define in a negative way who they are as men.
This week about a thousand college students will dance all weekend raising money to fight childhood cancer: http://thon.org/
I know one of those dancers pretty well. Apparently he listened along the way when he was taught he has a responsibility to help others in need.
All of these men give me continued faith that it does get better.....
