Father’s Day

Father’s Day will be celebrated on June 19 this year. As I think about the fathers who recently lost their children in the Uvalde shooting, it makes me appreciate my role as a father even more.

A father is a motivator, an enforcer, encourager, trainer, and counselor. Oftentimes, by necessity, a father is the front-line caretaker and nurturer.

As Father’s Day approaches, I want everyone to be reminded of the important role that your father, grandfather, or significant male role model played in your life.

Remember that being a father doesn’t come with instructions. All we have is our unconditional love and strong desire for the very best for our loved ones to guide us.

Yakoke and God bless!
