Qualities of a Real Man
Qualities of a Real Man
12/06/2012

I learned the qualities of a real man as a child more than 50 years ago, from men with memories reaching back as far as the Civil War; men who helped shape our world and saved it from a terrible evil.

It boils down to this: being trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. Those are just to start. Then throw in liberal doses of real patriotism, honor, integrity, charity and loving your fellow man at least as much as yourself. Stand up against the evil of the world (and there's plenty of that to go around). Help your family, friends, neighbors, church and community as often and as much as you can without hurting your own family.

Then just be a good, useful member of society, contributing to its success, not feeding off of it. Marry a fine woman and then have children, and try to teach them also to be decent human beings as you have learned.

God bless you Dr. Laura,

Bruce
