Video: Fatherhood and the epidemic of fatherless homes

Virtually every major social pathology has been linked to fatherless children: violent crime, drug and alcohol abuse, truancy, unwed pregnancy, suicide, and psychological disorders—all correlating more strongly with fatherlessness than with any other single factor, surpassing even race and poverty. The majority of prisoners, juvenile detention inmates, high school dropouts, pregnant teenagers, adolescent murderers, and rapists come from fatherless homes[1].

...this is the stuff is what my soul speaks to.  We men need to step up and find ourselves, become alive, so we can become the men in our homes we're meant and called to be.
