Brian Holiday-El On Father's Day.

Let's Go!

"Father's are an endangered species, the cards are stacked against us, and the game is rigged in everyone else's favor but our own.  We don't get medals or awards, and, for the most part, boys are treated like babies, men are treated like boys, and the majority of males behave as children.  

Systematically, the role itself has been genetically emasculated, socially denigrated, and economically castrated.  We're always outnumbered, we're always outgunned, and our collective presence as a progressive force is virtually nonexistent. 

Put another way, 

Father's are so rare the children we parent aren't just born to make a difference in the world they're born to create their own, so each lesson we teach them changes the rules and each lesson they teach us changes the game.   The medals we wear around our necks are our children's arms and our award is looking into their eyes of innocence feeding on the understanding we've instilled by making it impossible for them to feel any other way except loved.  The odds against us are great because victory means a living legacy, better educated, better prepared, and better positioned to have a better life and a more promising future than we've ever had, for generations upon generations, forever and ever.  Amen." Brian 'TiB!' Holiday-El 

Happy Father's Day!
