Several times I have been sent/seen the story of the World’s Greatest Dad. That touching story is of a dad and his love for his son as he takes him with him during triathlons. He swims (towing his son in a boat), bikes (putting his son in a modified child seat) and runs (push his son in a stroller). They have done marathons and there is no question it is one seriously great story. It touches you way down deep.
Is it the greatest story ever? Is he the greatest dad ever? Well I thought maybe so, until tonight I was sitting here watching ESPN. On come the story of a trumpet player and piano player, Patrick Henry Hughes. Wow, no pun intended, the kid plays and I’m blown away. He is talented and has vision sighted people can only hope to have.
I am sure there are hundreds of thousands if not millions of parents who have struggles for the love of their children. But it’s hard to argue with the love displayed by dad’s such as these.
