“[I]n commemorating fatherhood, we’re also expressing a basic truth about America. What does fatherhood mean today in America? I guess the same as it always has. Fatherhood can sometimes be walking the floor at midnight with a baby that can’t sleep. More likely, fatherhood is repairing a bicycle wheel for the umpteenth time, knowing that it won’t last the afternoon. Fatherhood is guiding a youth through the wilderness of adolescence toward adulthood. Fatherhood is holding tight when all seems to be falling apart; and it’s letting go when it is time to part. Fatherhood is long hours at the blast furnace or in the fields, behind the wheel or in front of a computer screen, working a 12-hour shift or doing a six-month tour of duty. It’s giving one’s all, from the break of day to its end, on the job, in the house, but most of all in the heart. Now, if you are thinking, ‘Look who’s talking — he’s a father himself.’ Well, that’s right, but on today I think we could all remember — this weekend, at least — that every father is also a son. So, on this day for fathers, we, too, say thanks to America’s dads — for the labor and legacy of our families and our freedoms.” –Ronald Reagan
