I finished this beautiful letter from a father to a son today. My heart broke as I listened to the author read his poignant words. As a parent, I would do anything to protect my child-literally, shielding their bodies with my own. Protection is not only sacrificing but also preparing and equipping. There is no doubt the coursework for living this life is dissimilar, and the final grade is much more than a simple pass or fail.
This read is powerful, necessary, and gut-wrenching.
