{the boys on the beach of Lake Michigan}
We told them, "It's a lake but it's so big that you'll feel like you're standing on the shore of the ocean." It wasn't until they stood and gazed that they comprehended the vastness of Lake Michigan.

I think it's important for boys to be struck with enough wonder and awe of the natural world to remind them that they're not invincible.

Yet, to feel small while simultaneously being reminded that the deep friendship and love in the unique bond of brotherhood is larger than this wide, wide world is a blessing to treasure for a lifetime.
