Men Cry More Than Women

A recent poll of 2,000 Americans say men cry an average of four times a month and women only three times.

I’m going to save the psychobabble and tell you about a man I admired for exactly that reason.

My high school Spanish teacher was a 40-something physical specimen, assistant football coach – not someone you’d want to tangle with.

EXCEPT, he was the gentlest man who could be moved to tears in front of men and women when touched.

I so admired him for that – living a life where he defined strength as compassion and gentleness as well as physically strong and determined.

One real life example means more than all the surveys in the world when gender is removed from judging humanity based on emotions.
