Today I want to wish not only my Dad a splendid and happy Fathers's Day, but also to all the fathers out there, to all the males that have accepted their responsibility of fatherhood, the males that recognize that fatherhood is not an OPTION, to those that are strong male figures in a child's life, the Supermen that complement their Superwomen in their journey through parenthood. With that said I'm blessed and thankful to have the privilege to wish my Dad a Happy Father's Day. Thank you for always being a strong presence, for raising me up to being the man that I am, thank you for teaching me to be resilient and for motivating me to push forward. Thank you for giving me an image to mirror in looking after my own family. Thank you for being a father to many, there are so many souls that you have touched, that regard you as a father figure and you have shaped their lives for the good. Thank you for working tirelessly and sacrificing everything that is you just so my siblings and I could have a better future.
However, It wasn’t until a few years later when my grandmother experienced a stroke, that I realized how truly powerful that book was. In witnessing the efforts of the doctors involved in saving her life as she hung by a thread, I recognized the weight of beholding knowledge that can be used to save lives.
