Father's Day greetings to my Dad and to all dads out there reading this! As a matter of fact, everyone in this picture is, by now a parent. Everyone but me.
Dad, I wish I weren't spending the entire day on an airplane (or waiting for cars, planes, etc.) and could be there to celebrate you and the wonderful job you have done as a father. You know, though, that I wish I could and I hope that for today, that is enough!
You enter my thoughts every day and every day something you taught me gets used. I am who I am largely because of your tutelage. Just yesterday, I was telling some friends something about how railroads worked. Something I had knowledge of only because you took me to your office at the FEC occasionally when I was a kid. Thanks!
I hope that everyone wherever they are today gives thanks to their father for everything he has done for them. (Go, stop reading this and thank your father for something. Now!)
