Yet, Fathers in our cities, villages, rural districts, townships, suburbs, and hamlets around the world collectively and, in some instances, under the most difficult set of circumstances go about the business of developing and implementing plans that will move their families forward and sustain a nurturing and strong family unit. Fathers put aside their own dreams so that their children will have the freedom to dream dreams and to transform those dreams into realities that the world will someday see, feel, hear, and touch. And Fathers teach our children -- our future -- our bridge to the future -- very valuable life lessons. Life lessons about integrity, discipline, sacrifice, loyalty, honor, responsibility, and unconditional love.
Single Fathers, Military Fathers, Custodial Fathers, Divorced Fathers, "Stay-At-Home" Fathers, and Non-Custodial Fathers throughout our global village are concerned about their children's health and physical safety. Fathers sometimes wonder if they are being good parents. Are they spending adequate and quality time with their children? What type of world will their children inherit when they reach adulthood? Will it be a better and safer world?
