Fathers Day

"I want to congratulate all the men out there who are working diligently to be good fathers whether they are stepfathers, or biological fathers or just spiritual fathers." 
                                                                                           T. D. Jakes

"When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry." 
                                                                                                William Shakespeare

"I am not ashamed to say that no man I ever met was my father's equal, and I never loved any other man as much."
                                                                                            Hedy Lamarr

"A good father believes that he does wisely to encourage enterprise, productive skill, prudent self-denial, and judicious expenditure on the part of his son."
                                                                                      William Graham Sumner

"My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me."
                                                                                                                  Jim Valvano

Mothers are Teachers

The first Teacher
Anyone can have
Is a mother

The first lessons taught
By everyone
Is by a mother

The first words learnt
By everyone
Is from a mother

The first love felt
By all living beings
Is from a mother

The first classroom is the home
Where life lessons are taught
Is promoted by a mother

The first rebuke of correction
To put a person in check
Is by a mother

Refugees are human beings
They are desperate for survival
They are forced to leave home
For a life you and I dream of.

Refugees are made like us
Their situation is complex
They need help and love
They deserve respect and kindness.

Refugees are brave people
They risk their lives to survive
They struggle with family and friends
Till they find a place to call home.

Refugees are among us
They need embrace and help
Anyone could be a refugee any day
Treat them as you would have them treat you.
