Niagara Gazette — Not that I do so anyway, but when our food was served, there was no need for me to sprinkle salt on it. I had ingested all of that salt that was necessary while we were still on my way to the restaurant; and I did so in the sweetness of all of the tears that I swallowed so that he would not see me cry.
What greater reward could one have that is better than that?
There’s more. I have been the father-figure to many children who were not biologically mine. And I am blessed when I see them all, and all of their children, too. I have long said that it takes but 15 minutes a day to be a dad, or a father-figure, to any child.
So if you want to make a difference to your community through someone’s child, especially your own, won’t you men please take 15 minutes on Tuesday to take a child to school. You’ll not only make a difference in their lives, but you will also discover how sweet the wine of your own tears taste.
