To the editor,
I recently received one of these ribbons at a roadside traffic stop. meaning “Mothers Against Drunk Driving.” Well, mothers, I highly esteem mothers who really care about the safety and integrity of their sons and daughters.
But, the question that needs an answer in conjunction with this is. Where are the fathers?
Why must this issue be addressed from a mother’s vantage point? (Though, I wish God’s blessing to mothers who are dedicated to teaching their sons and daughters of a better way.)
But, father, where are you?
Are you, father, the leader and example, role model, guiding your sons on the road of sobriety and moral uprightness?
Father, can your son pattern after you and also become an upright, honourable young man who will influence others to do right?
Fathers, I am also a father, so I urge you with me to be men of moral uprightness and integrity, not leaving this weighty responsibility to mothers to solely influence our sons. No one can replace you or fill your role that we are responsible towards our sons.
