Obama Father's Day Speech

Whatever you think of Barack Obama's politics, you gotta admit he sure can deliver powerful speeches. Today was another example as Sen. Obama delivered a Father's Day speech to the congregation at Apostolic Church of God in Chicago. Here are a few excerpts:

Of all the rocks upon which we build our lives, we are reminded today that family is the most important. And we are called to recognize and honor how critical every father is to that foundation. They are teachers and coaches. They are mentors and role models. They are examples of success and the men who constantly push us toward it.

But if we are honest with ourselves, we’ll admit that what too many fathers also are is missing – missing from too many lives and too many homes. They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. And the foundations of our families are weaker because of it.
