I’d like to wish a happy father’s day to all the fathers, grandfathers, uncles, caregivers, and any other men who serve as protectors, providers, and role models. Although our culture doesn’t outrightly “approve” of the absentee or distant father, it certainly perpetuates the disturbing idea that it is quasi-normal. Thank you for standing against the culture and standing for what’s right. We need more men like you.

And especially to my own dad– I’m still this happy to be your daughter. :)
