I don't want to be a failure, when it comes to being a dad. To me that would be, no one could trust me.

Your father might have been "ordinary", but unfortunately his kind of life is becoming less and less "common". Fathers who play and active role in raising their children and pass on valuable moral values to the next generation are becoming quite rare. Society will suffer as we raise the next generation that is growing more and more "fatherless".


Thanks for the reminder of just how uncommon ordinary families, fathers, mothers and children are. Free to be kids, free to express themselves, free to love without embarassment, free to be together without complaint, free to sit next to each other in church, free to squabble in the car without fear of being stabbed or shot, etc. How blessed we who come from ordinary circumstances are.
