Happy Father's Day everyone!

Just wanted to wish all you men who have taken on the responsibility of raising children in this crazy world a happy and peaceful Father's day! Many of us have watched our Urchins grow into fine young citizens whom we can be proud of. I also suspect some have not been so fortunate, but not for the reason of "not trying". I often think that child rearing is 30% good parenting skills and 70% luck! Several of us have lost children to accidents and disease and yet still believe in the goodness and necessity of having been a good parent. Despite the dangers and anger in this modern world, most of you are still railing against this "darkness" and doing your level best to guide them in the right direction so they might have a chance for a happy and productive life. When I see and meet young folks who are respectful, kind, and just good people, it reminds me that that there are still a lot of good, and concerning Fathers out in the world that are backstage, directing and guiding these young folks. Keep up the good work, guys!

30-seconds of fun followed by a lifetime of work. Both are rewarding.

Happy Father's Day!
