We are receiving a lot of great stories from our readers honoring the fathers, sons, brothers, and others who have exemplified “the good in men.” Please be sure to tell us the story about a man of significance in your life and together we will correct the misleading notion perpetuated by the left that masculinity is somehow “toxic.”
We will continue posting a selection of these contributions and gifting an Égard watch (3 – Neutral) to a deserving man this Father’s Day.
Lewis in Tennessee writes:
My father was my hero at a time when superman was making the scene, and he couldn’t touch my dad. I’ve never heard my father raise his voice or say a negative word about anyone no matter how they talked to him.
My father wasn’t always perfect. I was the third oldest of nine children and feeding a house full on a daily basis wasn’t easy. He managed it by making moonshine in his younger days, sometimes with his brothers or by himself in the mountains at night. He also worked in the coal mines in the day just to keep us fed.
He raised us to go to church and always respect our elders because they would always remember you by the way you treated them.
His words to me growing up was that he would rather see a sermon than to hear one any day, for him, a lot of people claimed to be more than what they were.
My father passed away in 1984 from a massive heart attack after building class rooms in his church basement because he knew the future would be our children.
There’s not a day that goes by that I’m reminded of the life, our talks, our road trips together and laughs we shared on daily basis.
I am the man I am today because of my hero—my father.
