The Influence of Fathers: Happy Father's Day
I wrote an Examiner.com article and mentioned my dad. Click here to view the article.
I was adopted as an infant. Considering all the unfavorable circumstances that COULD have come my way, I feel blessed to have had the best parents in the world, for me. I could say so much more about his fun-loving, abiding influence in my life, but I'll save that for another time.

In the article, I also talked about Christian Nielsen--a modern-day dad who inspires me beyond words.
Christian inspires me because he, in such a quiet, reserved way, is such a great husband and dad. In spite of he and his wife suffering extensive burns from a near-fatal plane crash in 2008, he serves his family out of great love. I've observed this first-hand, and I'm refreshed and amazed. Their struggles continue on, yet they remain hopeful, faithful and committed to eachother.

There are many people in the world who are Generational Change-makers. Stories of overcoming great odds continue to inspire us all. No matter the past, we can build a wonderful future by the power of our positive influence.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
