Happy Father's Day 2014

As America observes Father's Day 2014, it is important to remember all fathers, including adoptive fathers, gay fathers, single fathers, and foster fathers. That is the message President Obama has sent in his Father's Day 2014 proclamation and exemplified in a heartwarming video.

In the proclamation issued on June 14, 2014, President Obama is notably inclusive. "With encouragement and unconditional love, fathers guide their children and help them envision brighter futures. They are teachers and coaches, friends and role models. They instill values like hard work and integrity, and teach their kids to take responsibility for themselves and those around them. This is a task for every father--whether married or single, gay or straight, natural or adoptive--and every child deserves someone who will step up and fill this role."

The President adds: "My Administration proudly supports dads who are not only present but also involved, who meet their commitments to their sons and daughters, even if their own fathers did not. Today, let us reflect on our fathers' essential contributions to our lives, our society, and our Nation. Let us thank the men who understand there is nothing more important than being the best fathers they can be."

Perhaps the most heartwarming video issued to celebrate Father's Day 2014 is the one below, in which an eleven-year-old boy thanks his adoptive gay dads.
