A Heartfelt Welcome

To those of you who call me friend, those of you that call me love, those of you who call me brother, those of you that call me son, those of you who call me hero, & those of you who don't know me at all: I welcome you to the mind of a man who's destined to save the world...

Father's Day

My father & I have few similarities... We're both born in May... We both listen to ALL types of music... We both love sports... We both are nerds when it comes to anything to do with comics (books, movies, etc.)... What separates us is what almost destroyed our relationship... Growing up as the eldest of two, my father always held me responsible for (what I felt anyway, lol) everything. Although I didn't agree with his methods or philosophies sometimes, I can't help but say that he helped me. Being that 9 of any 10 friends that I had at any point in my life didn't really have their father in their lives, I had no choice but to be grateful for the fact that regardless of our disagreements: My Father Is Here... Though I felt things were unfair for me, that I missed out on things, that I didn't have the relationship with him I wanted, I kept thinking: My Father Is Here... We're in a world now where Father's Day isn't a holiday to pay homage to men taking care of their children. It's a reminder of how life doesn't work how you want it... A reminder of why people live the life they live or don't... A reminder of struggle, pain, and anguish... A reminder of knowing that people don't have their father in their lives... It's funny how downplayed Father's Day is really... Think about it: When people shout out Father's Day (wherever it might be) it's more common to see comments like: "Happy Father's Day to the REAL fathers" "Happy Father's Day to my mother for being more than a father"... You also see common phrases like: "biological dad" & "sperm donor"... You don't see Mother's Day having comments such as these... You don't see "Happy Mother's Day to my father for being a better mother than that lady that gave birth to me"... Something's gotta change... I think my "Pop Diggity" had it right... He was there... He's the prime influence, model, example of a father that the world should follow.... Maybe then Father's Day wouldn't be so negative... It would get the credit it deserves... With all that said... I love & appreciate my father not just for all the things I've learned from him and not just because he helped mold me & my brother into men... But simply because he was there... And he's still here... Being a Father

Love ya Pop
Happy Father's Day to you and every other Father that's "there"
