Happy Father’s Day

The words that a father speaks to his children in the privacy of home are not heard by the world, but, as in whispering galleries, they are clearly heard at the end, and by posterity.

Dads, in this modern era, get a bum rap. They have inherited (and have to fight) all the previous generations’ assumptions about the disinterest of fathers. The dads I know and the dads I read are so far from “disinterested” it makes the old assumptions implausible. And although I share the common opinion that fathers of old weren’t as involved as fathers today, I do think there were still good dads in there down through the ages. How else would we have gotten such great dads today? (There is no “versus”, I believe in nature AND nurture.)

So to all the amazing, involved, loving dads out there, my hat is off to you.  I’d like to proclaim you all…


Hope your father's day is a good one!            - wg
