remembering lessons learned from my two fathers on this Father’s Day, 2016

keep an open mind
no matter what you hear
a loving heart
no matter how you are treated
never forget the blood in your veins
where you come from is who you are
take the high road
over pettiness and jealousy
don’t avert your eyes
from injustice to anyone
always be kind
to all, yes, all
follow your own path
no matter how lonely
seek knowledge
wherever it lies
always have passion
for what who
you love

  1. So much here, many lessons and very glad you had these men in your life, Leonard. A fine tribute with “Never avert your eyes to injustice” being a valuable, long lasting one.
