Guys need to be productive, to know they’re contributing at home, at church, in society. And they do. Guys, your years of accumulated experience and wisdom are valuable to everyone around you. Your family, your workplace, your community needs you now more than ever. Don’t hide behind sports or screens. Don’t run off. Be here. Be you.
