Soon, soon we shall begin to hear, first as a whispher- then as a clamor- the woman is the father of the house, the woman fathers the home, Mary is my father, Hillary is my father, Elizabeth is my father, Ada is my father, and we shall hear too- Paul is my mother, Stephen is my mother, Colbert is my mother. #All a social construct.
Follow in the footsteps of your fathers' virtue! How could you hope to climb high unless your fathers' will climbs with you?
