The best mentor a boy could ever have is his dad! Unfortunately, too many men are not there for them. There are many reasons and excuses for their absense, but this article is not about that awful fact. Hopefully, an uncle or grandfather can fill in, but since 43% of families exist without a father at home, the void is too large to fill. There are some special men, though, that do special things. When men give of their time and themselves to help those who desperately need it, they save lives, literally and figuratively. Think about that for one moment. Is there any accomplishment that could compare to saving just one life, let alone many?
