If you were to describe what it means to be a man in one word, what would it be and why?
"I would choose the word rock. A rock is firm. When it is formed, it is not easily shaped by its surrounding elements. Like a man, a rock can be moved, broken, and turned. They also listen, remain strong, endure and last. A rock at a river bottom stands against the current, while also getting all its rough jagged edges smoothed out."

Who is the manliest person you know and why?
"My grandfather John. He has presented to me the most manliness. He is big and strong but also gentle and soft. He cares for others but protects his wife. He supports my decisions but leads my intuition."
