Brothers, How are you doing? Before you respond even in your mind, take a moment and really think about your answer. How are you really doing? When I take a moment to think about how I am doing, I feel the juxtaposition of being in a good place in my life while at the same time worrying what could happen to me. Almost every day, I see a video where a young Black man or older Black man is being harassed by police. I often wonder what I would do if stopped by the police and the situation escalated. How would I get home? What would I need to say or do that would be right? I tell myself all the time that I am a good guy, a "upstanding citizen" but how do I stop a man with ill intentions. I feel like I still have much to do. I want to make my impact in the world. Do something big. Be someone. I have been considering going to therapy. I want to talk to someone who will listen. I want to (as I like to say) blow someone's mind. I just want to rant it all out. All my fears, hopes and dreams. Right before I started writing, I was thinking, "How do I get more traffic to The Manhood Tree website?". I have decided that I have to offer value. Real value. I would like to use this blog as an opportunity for me to share my thoughts, ideas, feelings and beliefs about my personal journey and The Manhood Tree. I would like you to join in. So, Brothers, How are you doing?
