Father’s Day 2013!

I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.
– Sigmund Freud

A quick shout out to all the dads out there! You are loved, appreciated, needed and incredibly important in the lives of your family. Sometimes it is apparent, other times, maybe not so much. Just know that everyday you are the superhero in their lives.

My father didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.

I love my job. So many times I talk to fathers who want to protect and provide for their families. The thought of anything disturbing the ebb and flow of the lives of their wife and kids send these men into protection mode… and that is why I see them so often in our emergency preparedness store. They search of ways to purify water in case there is no water available. They look for long term food storage just in case the grocery store is picked clean. They have seen disaster happen in history books and believe it is better to be prepared that to be caught in a bad situation with nothing to fall back on. Kudos to you dad. Thanks for thinking ahead.

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.
