My friend Leela Maria Middleton shared this with me and some of her other friends yesterday. I got permission to post her words along with the video. Not everyone has an uncomplicated father’s days. This is for everyone out there that deals with a difficult day today.
Dirty little family secrets broke you before I was ever conceived. You helped give me life, I helped smash the cycle, we each play our parts. Because of grace and tenacity I have the honor of becoming rooted as a wicked, sublime wind clears away the generations of broken spirits, I hope you feel some ease in your little boy heart and I forgive you for being a broken man. Happy Fathers Day.
