Men Rejecting Passivity & Accepting Responsibility

July 8, 2008

If you saw the news today you saw that Kansas City Chiefs TE, Tony Gonzalez, saved a life last night. What was so amazing about this was part of Gonzalez’s report of the event:

“She was screaming, “He can’t breathe, he can’t breathe,”‘ Gonzalez said by phone from California, where he lives in the offseason. “The whole restaurant was quiet. Nobody was doing anything.”

Colin Cowherd made a comment today that this quote by Gonzalez gives a picture of the current state of manhood in America. Fifty years ago there would have been men fighting one another to help. Now, there is a room full of passivity. What has happened to our society that we will watch another person die without feeling any responsibility to help?

As Robert Lewis, founder of Men’s Fraternity writes, a real man rejects passivity and accepts responsibility. Thank goodness Tony Gonzalez did that last night.
