The reason for my stern position on this is that in my observation of society and the social condition of our community, I believe the break down of the traditional family is at the center of problem. I believe there are many external contributing factors to this break down of family, but I also believe that we have all we need internally to fix every problem we face. I also believe we have no hope of ever fixing these problems if we do not accept responsiblity for fixing them regardless of external contributing factors. None of the external contributors to our problems will contribute to fixing these problems so we must fix them ourselves or they will not be fixed.But you didnt answer my question. Is the reason for you angst on this, that dad wasnt there?
The traditional family is our most powerful tool to equip our young people for life. This begins with fathers taking the lead in the home, being the man, being the father, protecting the mother of his children, and not abusing his position as head/lead of the family. This is the key to the futher of our community. When I hear men trying to side step or bail on this responsiblity, it makes me question the future prosperity of our collective community if this ideology is widespread.
