Yesterday I came across the clip below and was introduced to Dear Daddy. It is a documentary by Janks Morton that looks at the lasting negative effects of fatherlessness in the black and latino inner-city community. The clip below brought me to tears and highlighted the importance of children being connected to both parents. Women can no longer attempt to (or be expected to) raise their children without fathers. The epidemic of fatherlessness in communities of color is a problem that both men and women have created. More women need to be careful about who they share their bodies with and more men need to stand by their responsibilities. Overall, we just need to do better. Let this be the catalyst.
Can you drink to that?
