Letter to the Editor


To my Sons, Grandsons, Great Grandsons, Nephews and all the sons that do not have a dad to talk to, I would like to help all that would want to have a dad around.

It is an honor to be your father, for you guys bring so much joy to my life.

When I see and hear the things that you are doing, I look back at your mom and say to myself, “well done.” With your help in raising our sons to become young men, not only are we proud of them, but the world can be proud of them as well. Without your mom, I could not be the dad that I am today. The maturity that all of you have achieved brings great pleasure to my heart and soul. Words cannot express the feeling that a father holds for his sons.

The power of love that I have for you, I do not say. I do not always tell you that I love you, but I do unconditionally. You and your sisters are the only reason that I do the things that I do in order to keep our family strong and together. All I do is to ensure that you do not have to go through the struggle like your mom and me.

I see the love in all of you guys when you are about doing your own thing, but when we all come together, there is a bond that is unbreakable.

I’m writing to say to my sons and all of the young men wherever you are, just do the best that you can with your sons. If you ever need any help, I’m around. For I have what one would call universal love for all of my peoples. Even the young men without their dad; I’m here for you as well. The ones that know me, I’m about uplifting falling humanity wherever and whenever I can.
