This is the national creed of the United States of America. Written by William Page in 1917 for a patriotic contest, it was adopted by the House of Representatives on April 3, 1918 and is, in my opinion, a exceptionally concise and comprehensive declaration of an American citizen’s relationship with his or her country.

As the years pass, I’m increasingly humbled by the memory of how gracefully my father bore burdens of which I’d been aware just barely while he lived. What a contrast in meaning there is to the words “Happy Father’s Day!” when spoken by young children to their Dad and by a man who’s become a father himself. The former is a deeply appreciated “Yay Dad!” a second birthday, an extra New Year’s Day and I wouldn’t miss that for anything. But the latter is more like “Oh My God Dad… I never understood but now I do and I can never repay you except to do my best to live up to your standard with my own children and thank you thank you thank you!” I regret never being able to express that “Happy Father’s Day!” to my own Dad in his lifetime, here on Earth, but I share the sentiment expressed by a younger correspondent (and thank you KC for that insight) that he’s getting the message somehow.
