As the world celebrate mothers for their efforts, same thing must be done for fathers who didn't turn their back on their responsibilities. Fathers are not easy to come by so if you have one, show him all the love and gratitude he deserves not just on father's day but everyday.
I also remember when every child was everyone’s child and every elder had the right to send anyone on an errand without their parents getting upset. Children will stand up for an elderly person to take their seat. I remember when on weekends or special occasions, one person will cook and share the food among everyone. We were each other’s keeper and your neighbour could question strangers entering your house or shop. Children no matter their religious background were thought to obey their elders. We lived in a unified society where love, peace and harmony were our hallmark. Life was beautiful and each one of us felt loved and protected.
