 "Dare to be a Man" (A powerful book by David G. Evans) http://www.davidgevans.com  

 

                

The Family Pledge:

(Go ahead, we invite you to please take the following pledge):

Because we have forgotten our ancestors, Our children no longer give us honor.

Because we have lost the path our ancestors cleared-- kneeling in perilous undergrowth, Our children cannot find their way.

Because we have banished the God of our ancestors, Our children cannot pray.

Because the old wails of our ancestors have faded beyond our hearing, Our children cannot hear us crying.

Because we have abandoned our wisdom of mothering and fathering, Our befuddled children give birth to children they neither want not understand.

Because we have forgotten how to love, the adversary is within our gates; And the world holds us to the mirror of the world, shouting, "Regard the loveless."

Therefore we pledge to bind ourselves again to one another, To embrace our lowliest, To keep company with our loneliest, To educate our illiterate, To feed our starving, To clothe our ragged

To do all things, knowing that we are more than keepers of our brothers and sisters, We ARE our brothers and sisters.

In honor of those who toiled and implored God with golden tongues, and in gratitude

To the same God who brought us out of hopeless desolation

We make this pledge."  (Amen)

I will live my life with honesty accountability and integrity; ACQUIRE and/or maintain a steady job, show up for work on time, and pay my bills.  I will never hit, hurt or harm women.  neither will i abuse  children in any way.   I  will never rape anyone.  I will take care of my children and family.  I will respect my elders.  I will strive to bring the love and share it with loved ones and friends.  If  I don't want to have children, I will use condoms.  use of Condoms are also needed to reduce the chances of sexually transmitted diseases.   I also understand that the safest sex is no sex until I am married; since  God has ordained sex  for marriage (between a man and a woman) only.   I also understand that part of safe sex and maintaining good health is having a yearly, complete physical examination performed by a certified physician.  I UNDERSTAND THAT DOING THESE THINGS WILL HELP  ME to become AN EVEN BETTER MAN.
