IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R)'S "CHILDREN'S CORNER" CELEBRATES 10TH ANNIVERSARY
In 2004, a brilliant, compassionate, courageous gentleman who was also the patriarch of my family -- a Man who always encouraged everyone around him to reach their full potential, called upon IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD® to create a CHILDREN‟S CORNER. "In Search Of Fatherhood(R) should have a Children‘s Corner. It‘s just a suggestion for you to consider," he whispered in my ear. In 2014, I am celebrating the tenth anniversary of CHILDREN‟S CORNER and the life of this wise Village Elder who would have turned 100 years old on 31 March 2014. Although he passed away on 24 May 2010 at the age of 96, his legacy is perpetuated through CHILDREN‟S CORNER. During his lifetime, he was the center of his family‘s universe and a positive male role model. He understood that our children are always asking us:: "Do you hear me? Do you see me? Do I matter?" Listening to our children – our bridge to the future -- and providing them with an avenue to express their dreams and share their view of the world clearly demonstrates to them that they are being seen, heard, and that they really do matter.
CHILDREN'S CORNER is this Wise Village Elder's gift to IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R) -- and more importantly -- the Children of the World. IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R) is continuing to perpetuate this gentleman's legacy by extending an invitation to all Children -- throughout the world -- to contribute poems and essays for publication in forthcoming issues of IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R).
Poems and essays can be e-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to: IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R), Post Office Box 3885, Philadelphia, PA 19146-0185 USA.
For further information about CHILDREN'S CORNER, contact IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R) by sending an e-mail to its Managing Editor, D.A. Sears, at: email@example.com or calling 267-581-3963.
