Father’s Day honors and celebrates the men who have taken on the pivotal role of fatherhood. On this day, we honor fathers and father figures for the enormous sacrifices they make and diligently carry out the responsibility of nurturing their children, and in turn shaping the future of our world.
Although mothers perform an important role in the lives of their children, the importance of a loving father cannot be overstated. Both parents are like two wheels on a bicycle, driving and shaping their children’s lives through various stages by taking on different roles — they both work as a team to raise their children to become responsible adults.
Father’s Day is observed around the world to respect fathers who serve as shields and healers while also inspiring their children to become capable leaders of the future. Every child looks up to his or her father as a constant in their lives, on whom they can rely at any time.
We commemorate this day to honor fathers who, like an actor or a chameleon, have to play a variety of roles for their children. It is important to remember how a father empowers himself to expertly perform any role that is assigned to him. And these roles are all addressed to the same person, the one who raises us, who teaches us right from wrong, and who takes on the role of a doctor, sitting up all night with a wet cloth by the side of his sick child, all while enabling the child to become a better human.
