1. The Mackinac Bridge is a bridge that stretches five miles to unite Michigan's Lower Peninsula, & Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It connects the LP (Lower Peninsula) at Mackinaw City, and the UP (Upper Peninsula) at St. Ignace. It is the worlds longest "total suspension bridge."

2. It is also the only bridge (that I know of) that has a valued name to needy people (such as myself) that depend on food stamps monthly to help meet monthly food needs. Wherein the bridge's name has value to us, is that the State calls our past food stamps a "Bridge Card" now. So in more ways than you'd think this bridge is a link from hard times to better times.
EX: Todd wondered why it was called a "Bridge Card", so he asked the lady at the DHS window and she told him why. She said that it was named after the Mackinac Bridge.

6. Man up can also mean for an individual to be (not "act") mature, to grow up, quit being childish, to change their ways and turn around (do a 180) and to go the correct way from now on, etc...

7. Close to that: man up can also mean for someone to stop being self-centered and to look at what they are doing, or how they are acting - for them to change viewpoints, and perspective on the situation(s) and move forward in the correct direction in their life, and/or in others lives.

8. Man up can also mean for one to be a leader, to step up to the plate when no one else will, to give it your best shot, to TRY!
6. Finally at age 38 I realized that I wasn't helping out anyone else but myself when I did those things, so I (did man up) grew up & repented of my ways (did a 180 degree turn from where I was at before, to go the other way now). It took some doing, and I am still working on it, but at least my family & friends know where I stand now.

7. Yanno, I wasn't sure where I was headed, because I really had no goals in my life; but since I met her - I (did man up) am on the right path!

8. When no one else would do their duty to step out onto the Battlefield, a scrawny Private (did man up), took notice, stood up, and started working his way through the enemy lines. His initiative brought on a great victory that day, and now he is a Hero to many.

1. To acknowledge and to take responsibility for your own actions.

2. Don't blame others for your own mistakes, problems, or issues when you know it is your fault and not anyone elses. If it is someone elses fault that you are in a situation or predicament then do the best you can to deal with it.

3. Some people say it means not to cry; that is incorrect. We all have feelings; to deny them is to lie to yourself and others, "MAN UP" and deal with it. If you don't you only cause yourself physical, mental, psychological, emotional, and spiritual damage; and you also affect those around you in a negative way as you take it out on them, instead of dealing with it properly. EX: Jesus was a Man among men; he didn't "cry" He "wept tears of blood." He went to the cross, He manned up for things that were not His own.
Even if you are not a Christian/Believer you can surely admit that Jesus was not a wimp, coward, or a liar - He said it, and did it.
1. He did the right thing, he went back and (man up) told his boss the truth and accepted the consequences instead of letting his co-worker take the fall for it.

2. She accepted (man up)responsibility for the accident and told her Mom that she is the one who broke the antique.

3. I felt so sorry for the sobbing man. His immediate family died in a tragic head-on car accident because someone else was drinking and driving. Overall he is dealing with it the best that he can - he is letting it all out (man up), mourning as he should. He sure does have the right to do so.

4. It also means for a workplace, or corporation to deal with, take care of, and help those people that they have caused hurt, damage, and/or injury to.

5. It can also refer to respecting someone enough to go talk to them, apologize, do what's right when it is the right time to do so.
4. The opposite would be the company fighting you in court with expensive, fancy lawyers who's sole responsibility is to twist situations/blame and/or to lie for and protect the company or organization that harmed the person(s) sitting at the other side of the table, hurt for the rest of their life. When someone does this all for money; it's NOT manning up - it's the farthest thing from it. It's all about doing the right thing... and this is not it.

5. The boss had no idea who had dinged up the car door. But she went to her boss and told her boss that it was she that accidentally dinged up the new Porsche. She is admirable for (man up) her responsibility, and she gained a lot of credibility with her boss too. She asked for forgiveness, and all is fine & well now between them. I think it may have started a new friendship between them, just because she owned up (man up) to it.

1. A Michigan State provided card (EBT), that is used to help provide bill money and/or food money for those in severe need who live in Michigan.

2. I thought it was called a "Bridge Card" because it helps people get from hard times across the bridge to better times. So, out of curiosity, I asked the lady behind the window about it and she said no, it's name refers to the "Mackinac Bridge"; but she thought that my idea about the card name explanation was more fitting and better though.
A picture of the Michigan Bridge Card, and it's governmental definition, etc.. can be found online through Google; but we can't post links on here, sorry.

EX: I use my DHS Bridge Card to get groceries, and w/o it I would starve.
