Male Mentoring Program by Asante Ward

           From what I've experienced from this program, I've learned that a true man is not who we are "taught" to be in our community. We were taught as toddlers that loving other boys and men was the wrong way to go. We were taught that being respectful to one another by complementing each other is a "gay" thing to do. But it it really? The great motivational speakers that have came to us has made us realize that a true man isn't that. A true man doesn't disrespect or hit a women, he respects another man's difference, he is a man of his word.
         The meaning of the song "Started from the Bottom" by hip hop star Drake is that people started from the lowest of the lowest. It means that they had to work to get to where they are and now they are on top. They are "here", represents that they are now something as oppose to nothing.
