to me it is a day when more people start to look at themselves and the roles their mother and father took .And sharing the imperfections of parenting .And doing the inside work of naming those roles . And admitting something is wrong . Its like airing your dirty laundry only we grow from it . And we see how those characteristics are named for what they are and are not passed on . Each generation learning more and more of each other .And we don t affirm bad behavoir . And sons through hard inside work are able to talk to fathers about those characteristics without anger rage . Where mothers who foster imagination and play are the heroes . And thats where real freedom begins and real truth .
