ABOUT TIED TOGETHER
One Man's Observation of TIED TOGETHER
"With eight set of eyes watching just me, I began to show them how to tie a tie. Could I actually connect with a group of young men I've never met?
As I searched for the words to describe a skill I could do in my sleep, I soon realized that none of them owned a tie, let alone had been taught how to tie a tie; a basic task I taught my son when he was five. Was tying a tie a lost art or was men spending time with young men the real lost art?
When I handed each boy their very own tie and watched them not only copy me but want to get it right, I looked around the gym and saw other men also engaged in their groups impacting and shaping the character of the next generation and I thought, yes, I want to do this again."
