To all fathers out there (especially dear hubby), this one’s for you. Be inspired and Happy Father’s Day!
“Nothing has touched me more deeply than [this honor given to me] by the National Father’s Day committee. By profession, I am a soldier and take great pride in that fact. But I am prouder, infinitely prouder, to be a father. A soldier destroys in order to build. The father only builds, never destroys. The one has the potentialities of death, the other embodies creation and life. And while hordes of death are mighty, the battalions of life are mightier still. It is my hope that my son, when I am gone, will remember me not from the battle, but in the home.”
General Douglas MacArthur, one of the greatest military leaders of all time, said this in 1942 after he had been given an award for being a good father.
