"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

A Father's Day Message

Happy Father's Day
It's in our State and U.S. Constitutions as well as settled law. Parents, children and families have profound rights to equal access to those natural and important factors of life.
When we have brought children into our lives, in a marriage or outside of it, we as parents have an obligation to protect our rights to be parents. Our children have rights to be parented. As parents, we have no legitimate excuses to avoid the obligation of being directly involved in those precious moments of our children's growth.
We must put, first things first, because parenting and watching our children grow and develop is the greatest reward you may ever receive. It is our right and our responsibility.
Nurture your child, be a parent. Attend the school open house, be a parent. Attend your child’s recital, soccer game, scouting event. Be a parent. Show your child their importance, recognize their accomplishments. The reward is a lifetime of memories for you both.
When your child makes something in school, cherish it. Display the hand made cards, the school project, and the award received. Show your appreciation; demonstrate your child’s value. Reward them with your attention and receive a lifetime of memories.
Skip Sunday football and attend your child’s swim meet. Ignore self-gratification and attend to the needs of your child. Recognize their achievements no matter how simple or small. Show you care. Make memories and be a parent.
There is no greater right than the right to be a parent. Show value to these rights, value your child and teach them self-worth. Be a parent. If you must, turn over every stone, research every law. Invoke your rights as a parent. IT'S YOUR DUTY!
Be A Parent, Be A Father!
