I didn’t write a tribute or an obituary immediately after he died. Not that much time has passed in the greater scheme of things, but from the perspective of doing a news story or covering a current event, hence why this is a blog.

The first year I started this blog, I wrote a poem for Mothers http://museumofuncutfunk.com/2009/05/20/funky-mothers-day/. I sent it out to all my friends that are moms via e-mail and made it my sixth blog installment. Earlier this week, an old friend of mine lost his dad, and another reminded me that Father’s Day was this Sunday. So I took time out to write a little something, in hopes it will allow “My Fellow Fathers” to have a better Monday.
The loss of National Treasures evokes thoughts of one’s own mortality and legacy. THEY DID THEIR WORK; THEY’VE LEFT THEIR MARKS ON THE PLANET; TOUCHED THE LIVES OF MILLIONS! How much time do we/ I have left? What will we/ I leave behind? My/ our child (ren) and/ or future children? This blog, a Facebook post? I believe those of us still here… STILL HAVE STUFF TO DO.
