In these days when the left has turned being male into a hate crime, recent terrible events have shown that traditional American males do still exist, whether they are risking their lives to save their neighbors from floods and hurricanes or sacrificing themselves to protect their loved ones from a madman’s bullets.
At the link is the moving story of 54-year-old construction worker Jack Beaton of Bakersfield, California, who was celebrating his 23rd anniversary with his wife Laurie when he recognized the gunfire at the Las Vegas concert. He told her to get down on the ground, then shielded her with his own body. His last words were, “I love you, Laurie.” His wife said he wasn’t the kind of man who would’ve wanted publicity, but she wants the world to know how he had protected her, just as he always had. She said, ‘‘I knew every day that he would protect me and take care of me and love me unconditionally, and what he did is no surprise to me, and he is my hero.”
In case you’re thinking I’ve already told this story, no: the story from yesterday was about another husband who sacrificed his life to shield his wife from bullets. They were from Tennessee and celebrating their first anniversary.
The left may bray on about “toxic masculinity,” but that kind of love, bravery and self-sacrifice is the very opposite of “toxic” to the people these men gave their lives to protect. Even more amazing is that despite what you hear in the media, they are not an anachronism or the last of a dying breed. Recent events have proven that America is still filled with heroic men like these, of all ages. And thank God for that.
