It was grueling, we were eaten my mosquitoes, and today I'm at work scratching like a baboon.
But I saw my son around a bunch of men, himself growing up into a man, right before my very eyes.
You men out there, raise your sons!
It is an American tradition for a father to do a better job than his father.
I don't care what color, or race, or any other artificial distinction you are. You are an AMERICAN and you love your freedom, and you believe in fair play. THIS is what makes an American man.
And we American men have a STRONG tradition to do better with our boys each generation.
Okay? Yeah, it takes effort and it's annoying, and maybe nobody lifted a finger for us. But we can do whatever we want; we are American men and we are FREE to do so.
And for our boys, it is worth it.
