The National Father's Day rally was as much of a success as it could be considering the torrential rain, thunder, and lightening that punctuated the day. For a rally that was scheduled from 10 am to 2 pm at the Lincoln Memorial and with rain that started at 8:30 that morning, the rally didn't have a chance for a good turn out. The rain, mostly the lighting bolts, I'm sure, kept everyone away, including President Barack Obama. He did send a video message, though.
The celebration of fathers is taking center stage these days and The President has committed to making that a steady happening, all while encouraging more fathers to step up to the plate. He has also committed to doing a series of town halls on the topic of fatherhood throughout the country, so stay tuned to this blog, my Facebook page, or follow me on Twitter for updates.
