    Yes, it is critical to talk about your feelings. It's OK for men to cry. It's OK for them to feel vulnerable, afraid. Your gender does not make you immune to human emotion. Being strong, courageous and brave is noble, but being able to admit you are weak and scared and frightened is even a more heroic thing to do. God bless you for what you've done and who you are.

    This is so so so important for people to hear. I’m grateful they did this interview, the survivors carry this invisible pain everyday for 20 years and probably until they themselves pass

    Beautiful MEN; knowing they are human and vulnerable, being strong daily beyond muscle, beyond words of bravado: being Real. I salute THAT.

    Not " weak " but vulnerable. Like humans are.
