You Aren’t Afraid To Hold Me Close

The older generation might not get it. Your friends might not get it – even some of them who have children of their own. But you’re different. You’re not afraid to show your affection for your family in public or to share the parenting responsibilities.

In a world in which too many children feel that their fathers are distant, dominating or closed-off, you have a chance to be a father who cares deeply and compassionately for those that he loves – and who is not afraid to show it.

You aren’t afraid to hold me close. You are my father.
