Yes, I know that it can be a day of triggers for people with jackass fathers, myself included. But I wished to say 'thank you' and Happy father's day to the decent, wonderful fathers that are here. The men who have broken the cycle, the men who show that the term 'father' does not need be tainted forever. People like Mike Church. Bill_1965. Jimrh. Andrew. Ivanhoe. Outis. Sophiesdad. FlRich. And I know there are many more I am forgetting! (Because a. I'm an idiot and b. I haven't been here for a while and c. I'm an idiot again!) Thank you all, everyone here who is a father who does not harm, who does not abuse.
And a special 'thank you' to Bob, 'The_Dean', who is not technically a father, but truly is a 'father' of great magnitude and generosity. I include you in this day also, my friend.
Thank you all, for helping to give me hope of maybe being a father of your caliber some day.
