Now more than ever, the link between violence and manhood must be explored, understood and dealt with. Did you know that men have a 3.5x higher suicide rate than women? It will come at no surprise to you as you explore the alarming gender gap that exists in terms of crimes and acts of violence. There’s a manhood crisis in America, and the entire society is suffering. I do my best to feature positive stories and to put fatherhood on a positive light, but we must also face the facts and properly address the epidemic of violence among men. I sincerely hope those figures will trigger you and inspire you to question this madness. We must end this. It is on us.

“You never find yourself until you face the truth.” Pearl Bailey
