Believing in an ideal is something every father should advocate. Ideals guide dads through the microcosm of life and assist them daily in making difficult decisions. Ideals are what prompted Thomas Jefferson to scribe the words “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Ideals are what guided Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt during some of the most tumultuous times in our nation’s history. Take a lesson from these men and set your life to some ideals which you can aspire to live up to everyday. If you can do that, then you give children a standard to which they can guide themselves.
