To all the fathers out there and those who have left us, Happy Father’s Day. Your love, discipline, patient, spoken and unspoken wisdom and sacrifice have made us a better person today. Thank you.
“Sherman made the terrible discovery that men make about their fathers sooner or later… that the man before him was not an aging father but a boy, a boy much like himself, a boy who grew up and had a child of his own and, as best he could, out of a sense of duty and, perhaps love, adopted a role called Being a Father so that his child would have something mythical and infinitely important: a Protector, who would keep a lid on all the chaotic and catastrophic possibilities of life. ~ Tom Wolfe, The Bonfire of the Vanities”
