Men can be close—very close, like brothers, and even closer than brothers. Deep down, all men long for this brotherhood. It's because we need each other. We need other men who get it. We were not meant to fight this fight alone.
The only encouragement that some men get is from a stranger on the side of a highway, while on hold with the VA suicide line. The only way they'll get a hug. That's our society. I don't know how we fix that, but somehow we need to.
