Men have left the responsibility of raising their children on the doorsteps of infatuated flings and state programs, but there’s something missing; A void that has been created by the absence of a male role model who was created to take part, a huge part in the life of his seed. The fruit of his loins have been expected to develop fully without its main source of nutrition, the guy with the same DNA filled with many traits that cannot be explained to the female that sees them show up so dominantly to their disdain and shock. Surprise you still have a piece of that guy and you treat them with the utmost respect when you remind them with; “ugh you’re just like __ , or he’s never even seen him how?”. No wonder we have the chaos and lack of morals and values in this country. Who is left to fill in for the missing person? Would we have grown men giving themselves raises and receiving bailout money when our country as a whole is suffering? Would we have as high divorce rates and absenteeism in the homes ofAmericaif fathers cared for our future? If a father knew his son or daughter was going to repeat the cycle of pain, would he still stay away? We can blame everyone else for the problems our country is facing and ignore the job we have neglected and keep the negative impact mounting by looking everywhere else but at home. We can continue to run away from the source of our downfall or we can stop, help someone up, dust him off and lead them to a better today. One day at a time can put our pain at ease and allow burdens to slowly fall off our next set of shoulders who have a lot of work ahead of them. Give them a lift, point them in a new direction. Send them a word of encouragement and tell them their needed.
