Lost my dad almost 24 years ago now. Suddenly. I still have nightmares about how.

He had his moments due to me being a little creep and not realising how fragile life is, but he was the most protective and supportive father. My entire world ended/changed/rebirthed the day I watched him gasp his last breath, in public..

Happy Fathers day, Dad... I hope you and nan and grandad, les, john, and doreen, are together.. somewhere.

I am sure he is together with the people you mentioned. I am sure you will see them all again someday.

I'm a father and a grandfather, but this is for my father who maybe still into my mind, since once spirit of creation doesn't leave the soul of one that it has created.
My father taught me right, and would "only" punish me one time in my childhood. I do mean punish "us old folks here remember the belt" that was not child abuse at the time. That was keeping your child from "abusing" others in life.
My father taught me how to live a life of survival on the water and the land. That I'm most grateful for. Now at the present time , I'm using the river with my knowledge of throw lines to catch eel and octopus. (I'm in Japan). This will bring me a daily income from my catches. I owe this to my loving and hard working (2 jobs) and caring and sharing dear father.

You got me worried for a second!

Did not know, that fathers day is celebrated on different days in different countries.

I kind of wonder if it will even be celebrated anywhere in 50 years. It may well fall victim to societal pressures against gender stereotypes and the toxicity of masculinity.

Always sweet, ma'am.




I did ask my oldest son what he got me for Father's Day.

His reply, "Why does Father's Day always have to be about you. . . DAD!"

I encourage those who have shifted unwanted situations in our upbringing into mothering/fathering our own children with a greater love than we experienced ourselves, to offer the newer generations the same respect. We must reflect that we were the troubled youth of the past, and should be thankful that we made it through safely. Each generation faces harsher and harsher childhood experiences, and we as humans should shift our attitude on how we raise EARTH'S youth... not just our own.

It's time to stretch our traditions a bit further to fit these current times. It is no longer satisfactory to treat others as we want ourselves to be treated... We MUST treat all others as we would want them to treat our own children!

People have the freedom and capabilities to treat life as they wish, but whatever paths we travel come with practice. What I mean is, it takes practice to create divide... just as much as it takes practice to create a talent in any of life's wondrous feats.

I would like to see Father's Day stretch beyond the definition of our individual father's. It is the spirit of fathering life and ALL life on Earth that is to be celebrated. There is no such existence as a fatherless child in my mind... any and all children are to be protected as the oneness of the human spirit thrives as one.

The human male does wear, and should wear the responsibility for the paths that generations behind us are forced to travel on. To see a change in the young generations that we wish for, we should be sacrificing our efforts to elevate all youth to the standard of parenting that we see fit. If actions of divide are chosen instead, then it shows through that the 'very troubling' aspects you speak of might be sourced from an internal source more than you might think. Think about it, you are the adult and have been in their shoes... you know what its like to live by learning the hard way, without your father's advice. That's all these young kids need these days... is the need for the world's love and fathering. I feel it is a responsibility of all adults to father in ways that by way of what is wished to be created as a whole... not just within our individual family's.

3 years to the day for me. My father's bday was June 18th as well. My family's plagued with ironic bad luck like that. Who dies on their b day? Dad knows I would make that joke at his funeral or wherever...

I think it will be, at least I hope so. I have no more Mother or Father, nor am I a Mom myself, but they are lovely days to celebrate and honor good people.
