The older I get the more I see that good fathers are somewhat of a rarity. I am very lucky to have the great father that I do. Hope I can be as good as he was/is.

Thanks for sharing.
Funny thing is this shows a father's worth but I bet women who read this will read into it as an insult

Beta as f*ck. What's more important than yourself? Your child, your blood. You let a woman who is naturally born beta to a man push you away from something more important than yourself? That man is beta.

Go along your merry way now...

Alarming statistics, but remember we're so cool and tolerant these days that it would be such a meanie republican thing to do to actually have real reprucussions for people who dont take responsibility for their kids. ACLU aint havin that. Hell nah.

love u pops wherever you maybe.

saved all your siblings from a gruesome death and managed to make it here in america without your pops. gave my mom a damn good lifestyle compared to what could have been... centered your work around aiding other human beings. never let yourself be sucked into alcohol or cigs or racism or silly victim mentalities or laziness or the weak complaining culture surrounding ya.. always good to my sister too giving her affection and guidance during her most turbulent years.

an exemplar of hard work and selflessness!

long live good dads. From atticus finch to alfred roberts to elliot hulse and everyone in between.

and double props to single moms who raised exceptional men.
