Kudos to all fathers! Fathers come in all sorts and shapes, and they present themselves in different forms. But whatever form that may be, they offer courage, strength support and advice to those presented to them.
The traditional role of the father has changed significantly. The modern day father's role encompasses responsibility to others' through non traditional means, and is continuously evolving. A person who takes on the role of the father by circumstance requires a great deal of perseverance to navigate their new position, and to fit in.
Also in abundance are the single fathers today, and they deserve recognition for their role in shaping a child into a healthy adult; one who is able to contribute to society as a healthy individual.
Bravo to all who answer to the name of "Father".
