It’s not often a line from a superhero movie could save your life. But in this case, it’s true.
There is a problem at the Grand Canyon. In the last eight days, three people have fallen 400 feet to their deaths.
What was the problem? High winds? Treacherous footing?
Nope. They just fell from the viewing areas.
The clearest answer we had of any of them was one guy who had to get that perfect photo.
That would also be the simplest explanation for why three people in eight days have fallen to an untimely death compared to the more typical one or two per year.
Selfies. If your attention is on that little hand-held screen, instead of how close your feet are to the edge, you’ll never know how dangerously close you are to a fatal slip.
Here’s where that movie advice comes in to play:
We shouldn’t need to remind everyone — especially adults — but maybe we do.
Get out there, and see the world. Enjoy it! Taking risks is part of what makes life worth living! But risking your life over a photo?
Some things just aren’t worth it.
Are you tired of seeing a culture calling masculinity ‘toxic’, wanting to ‘crush the patriarchy’ and seem generally hellbent on emasculating the next generation of boys before they have a chance to become men?
Would you like to be part of the solution, instead of just complaining about the problem, but aren’t quite sure where to start? We’ve got you covered.
Presenting: Doug Giles’ audiobook ‘Raising Boys Radical Feminists Will Hate‘.
It was written with one objective in mind, to help parents raise their young boys into confident men in the face of a hostile culture:
“Your daunting mission is to go against the grain, stand up to the radical feminists, and raise your little man into a lion, capable of leading the next generation into a moral culture of God, family, and country.”
