Children are more than mere extensions of ourselves. They are our future. Our bridge to the future. Men -- especially Men who are Fathers -- have key "pieces of the puzzle" to creating a strong foundation for the bridge to our future. But in the Millennium, the task of creating a strong foundation for the bridge to our future is a daunting task -- a task that, for many, is being undertaken under the most difficult set of circumstances and against great odds. Men -- especially Men who are Fathers -- are the glue that holds our families, our communities and our world together. No one in our global village should ever be made to feel that he or she does not matter or what he or she has to offer is not important. Yet, for example, Men throughout our global village, in one-on-one conversations, in conferences , and in Internet discussion groups express feelings of isolation and worthlessness. Every idea is important. Every voice must be heard. We cannot afford to have Men -- especially Men who are Fathers -- living and walking among us who feel devalued and isolated ... that they have nothing to contribute and that they are without options.

We all have key "pieces of the puzzle" that will assist Men in developing and implementing plans that will move their families forward, positively shaping the minds and souls of our children, and strengthening and empowering our families, our communities and our world. After all, it's really about the children -- our future -- our bridge to the future.
In June 2008 -- INTERNATIONAL MEN'S MONTH, let's bring our key "pieces of the puzzle" to building a bridge for the future to the Table Of Humanity. Every idea is important. Every voice must be heard.
After all, isn't it really about the children?
