As our readers know, I like to highlight stories in the media, on other blogs or just stories in general that speak to the need for fathers and the important roles we play in life. During 2012, there were quite a few stories that did just that. From retrospectives on amazing fathers and roles models who passed away in 2012 to stories about fathers doing amazing things for their families, to warnings for fathers about current societal trends, these stories remind us of how we as fathers have been influenced by great role models (and maybe not so great role models) and the importance of being great parents to the rising generation.
Enjoy, and have a happy and safe 2013!
