Dear Blackman.....no.....Black Father,
I want to let you know that even though at the present moment you may not feel it, you truly are appreciated and you are loved. When you look into the eyes of your child, I hope you can see the love so that it pushes out the hate. I want you to know that we're here rooting for you. We want to see you succeed and reach your wildest dreams. Your life forever matters and your life is important. You are valued and to your children, there is no one that can take your place.
I hope that you stand tall knowing the world needs you. Knowing the world wouldn’t be the same without you. You give more light to this world than you could ever imagine.
You are not a threat, you are not scary.
And, you are not less than anyone. I cannot say it enough, you matter! I know today, just going for a walk, a run, a trip to the grocery store or even to a fast food restaurant can make you feel uncertain. We live in an uncertain world gentlemen. However, you have someone, your children waiting for their protector to walk back in through that door.
You see to the accomplishments of your goals while laying down of the foundation for your lineage, your legacy, your children. You hold a place in their hearts that only a dad can.
Dear Blackman....no.....Black Father, we know what has been going on lately can make you feel down. However we want you to know, today we celebrate you and all of your greatness. We will celebrate YOU a little bit more today. You matter to the world, and you always will.
Dear Blackman....no....Black Father, this is our letter to you this Father’s Day. Thank you for taking the mantle and honor of fatherhood.
Signed with RESPECT,
Lorenzo L. Sellers
