June 18, 2021 Category: Commentary Posted by:

As the abstract essence of your existence has so many different meanings for so many different people in your life, YOU remain bold and brave. 

As YOU could become blinded by so many choices, temptations or life’s reality in your daily walk, YOU exert your responsibilities. 

As your children seek YOU for guidance and your woman seeks your protection and love, feel its energy as YOU lead. 

Today is a day set aside just for YOU, in celebration of YOU, and all that the many hands of folk require from YOU. 

Father’s Day is a day unlike no other; it highlights the many wonders of your care, the late hours you put in, your discipline, and the many days set in motion for all that YOU give to your offspring.

Let us all stand as YOU take your seat and we take a moment to say thank YOU and that YOU are loved by all of your folks, especially your child or children.

 Until next time….PEACE!
