I was thinking of my favorite movie scenes a few nights ago. Although the scene below is not from a movie, it was so beautiful, and moving, that I wanted to share it. It is a must see; even if you have already viewed it.
According to 72.2 % of the U.S. population, Absentee Fathers is the most significant family or social problem facing America.
An estimated 24.7 million children (36.3%) live absent from their biological father. http://www.dads-daughters.com/absentee-fathers.html
How do children always find a way to blame themselves? Even into adulthood. In a way, leaving a child behind with no explanation is another form of stolen innocence. The care free nature of a child becomes convoluted and far from jovial; and to be jovial is a child’s only job.
Do fathers see the way their newborn baby’s face lights up when they hear ‘dada’s’ voice? Do fathers notice the way their daughters think daddy is invincible? Do fathers know how much their sons look up to them and aspire to make them proud?
This is not meant to beat up on dads, because I only want dads to know to know that a father’s love is irreplaceable. Irreplaceable.
