Real Men

Real Men are the ones that cry and do not hide their tears.

Real Men are the ones that dig a trapped family from the rubble and stay with them through hours of terror and pain.

Real Men are the ones that walked the dark road, trying, trying, and trying again to get to the families that mean so much to them.

Real Men are the ones that cut tree after tree after tree knowing that they had to reach the people in need.

Real Men are the Boys who became Men on that Wednesday night.

Real Men are the ones who lifted children from beneath a crushed house.

Real Men are the ones who used their bodies to shelter their families.

Real Men are the ones who lifted up prayers to the Lord - some as they took their last breath.

Real Men are the ones who never gave up... they had to get down the road.

Real Men are the ones who tried again and again to get into the valley.

Real Men are the ones that put aside their own wants and needs to slave in the sun and put treasures into boxes for a family in need.

Real Men are the ones who inspire their sons to be like them.

Real Men are the ones who inspire their daughters to marry Men like them.
