“In many ways, I came to understand the importance of
fatherhood through its absence-both in my life and in the
lives of others. I came to understand that the hole a man
leaves when he abandons his responsibility to his children
is one that no government can fill. We can do everything
possible to provide good jobs and good schools and safe
streets for our kids, but it will never be enough to fully make
up the difference. That is why we need fathers to step up, to
realize that their job does not end at conception; that what
makes you a man is not the ability to have a child but the
courage to raise one.”
President Barack Obama
