A father’s role in a daughter’s life is important if she is to become a strong woman. A daughter writes to her father, thanking him for letting her be herself.
Thank you, for letting me be! As I stand at the threshold of plunging into adulthood completely, I take time to sit back and think of how I was raised.
As I remember, I was a tough kid. I asked questions, uncomfortable ones at that. I rebelled, against anything that didn’t seem fair or right. I fought, against any word that was not spoken fairly, every action that did not see people as equal.
Yet you smiled. You only told me to write it out. You continued smiling. When someone made comments on raising two daughters, you smiled and told them the daughters are raising you as a father.
You let chauvinism die a slow death. You crushed chivalry when you let us carry our own baggage, literally and figuratively; emotionally, mentally, physically and every possible way.
A human, I believe in a better world soon.
