Last week the Daily Press asked me to submit, in 100 words or less, what I think is the most important lesson a father can teach his children, and this is what I said:
As my father, Ike, might put it, who at age 90 remains my hero and inspiration: "Scott, life goes by so quickly. Be careful to not let the stuff of life crowd out the real purpose of life, which is to love and honor God. That includes loving and setting a good example for your family. It means loving your neighbor and meeting the obligation you have to your country. In doing so you will lead a fulfilled life. And when you fall short, and you will ... we all do ... learn from it, accept God's grace, and keep moving. Blessings!"
I hope you and your family have a very special Father's Day.
Mindful that I work for you, I remain
Yours in Freedom,
