B.L.A.C. asked our readers to tell us about great fathers in our community. After all, they don’t get much attention. They’re busy going to work, taking care of their homes and families.
You told us about fathers who play Barbie with their daughters, plant gardens in their backyards and lead grassroots organizations. You told us about the dads who teach Sunday school and mentor children after school.
They are out there teaching their children—and other people’s children—the Bible, to play basketball, soccer and football. They pick them up from school and take them out for ice cream treats.
So we celebrate all the fathers who don’t make headlines, the dads who are gentle giants in their homes—and the community.
