Stepping Up

June 21, 2009

Just wanted to send a quick note wishing all of the fathers (biological or otherwise) and the single moms doing double duty, a very Happy Father’s Day! Below is an excellent essay by President Barack Obama featured in today’s Parade Magazine. In it, he reflects on what fatherhood means to him.

Also in this post is video from the Young Mens Barbeque which took place on Friday at the White House. Hosted by President Obama, the Young Mens Barbeque was held for students from local schools to discuss the importance of fatherhood and taking personal responsibility. He is joined by well-known fathers from across the country, as well as everyday fathers who have successfully managed to fulfill their obligations.
