Some men draw circles around themselves in which they pledge to care for their wives and children.

Other men can draw slightly bigger circles that include extended family and parts of their community.

But, a few men can, or are willing, to take responsibility for all those that cross their path or need them.

I would dare draw my circle so large that I stand for all of my Brothers and Sisters.

But, I also understand (and today better than any other) that there is a COST for taking this position.  And, sometimes it means a serious ass-kicking (emotionally speaking that is).

So…  What may come…  This is me all bold and fearless; leaning forward.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
