    I wish to add “Captains Courageous” – a film from my Saturday afternoon ‘5 o’clock matinee’ days. If you look at the trailer, you see that fish that the young man caught? Well, he had to throw it right back into the ocean after he bragged that he had tangled up the lines of a competing crew.
    There was an East Indian film about a father who went from India to London to “rescue” his son from western influences. A memorable line from the subtitles was, “The western world has found a way to the moon. It is still searching for a way to God.”
    A very happy day to all – Fathers, Step-fathers, Single-parenting Mothers, Father figures …. you get my drift.
