Happy Birthday Dad – Mentor, Confidant. Legend. Best Friend.

It’s my Dad’s Birthday. Mentor, Confidant. Legend. Best Friend. Dad, As I get older, I hear your voice ring in my ears more often, more true… and I find me asking myself in quiet moments asking “What would Dad do?”.

Poem: Fight for It

If you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it, to work day and night for it, to give up your time, your peace and sleep for it… if all that you dream and scheme is about it, …and life seems useless and worthless without it… if you gladly sweat for it and fret for it and plan for it and lose all your terrror of the opposition for it…if you simply go after that thing that you want with all your capacity, strength and sagacity, faith hope and confidence and stern pertinacity…if neither cold, poverty,...
