“Dear Fathers of the Fatherless Children: Do you know your sons and daughters are AMAZING? They are full of life and they are truly a blessing. Your sons and daughters need you in their lives. How is it possible that at the beginning of the day when you open your eyes, your children are not on your priority list? Fathers of the fatherless children, your sons and daughters crave your presence and your support. They want you in their lives more than you will ever know. There isn’t such a thing as a part-time father; your children shouldn’t be treated as toys that you can throw in the closet when you are tired or when the going gets rough. Your sons and daughters are human; they should feel loved and nothing less at all times. You say you love your children, but actions speak louder than words; stand up and be a father to your sons and daughters. Fathers of the fatherless children, open your eyes and know your presence is very critical. Be your son’s hero and let him know he can conquer the world. Be your daughter's first knight in shining armor. Be a part of your son’s and daughter’s success instead of their pain.”

“Father of the fatherless children, how dare you blame a child for your wrong-doing? How dare you continue to blame the mother of your child? Correct yourself and own up to the mess you made in your life and your child’s life. This is not your child’s fault. They are innocent. You have nobody to blame but yourself. Either you are going to get on the bus or get left behind. Remember, one person doesn’t stop the show, and life goes on whether you are in your child’s life or not. It is your choice. Whatever decision you make, know, it will be a decision you will have to live with for the rest of your life.”

“Dear Fathers of the Fatherless Children: We are told to live for today, however, the question is—how many people live for “today?” If you are living for “today” at the end of the day, could you say you took care of all of your responsibilities? Each day has a purpose; each day creates a memory, and each day should be precious.”

“Father of the fatherless daughter, do not be the lost soul in your daughter’s life. Play a major role in your daughter’s life. She should always be her daddy’s little princess, even when she is old and gray. She deserves to be happy! She deserves to be loved! She deserves joy! And she deserves you!”

“Dear Fathers of the Fatherless Children, There isn't such a thing as a part-time father. Why would you want to be a revolving door father? It's either all-or-none.”

“Father of the fatherless sons and daughters, you are the missing piece. Either you are going to man-up and fill that empty space in the puzzle or be a coward and take the easy way out. Either way, when all is said and done, if you are in your son’s and daughter’s lives it will be a win-win situation for everyone. If you decide to walk away and it all goes up in flames, your sons and daughters will the last ones standing!”
Charlena E. Jackson, Dear fathers of the fatherless children

“Dear Fathers of the Fatherless Children: Ask yourself—did you put your best foot forward? Or did you point fingers at everyone else instead of focusing on what you need to improve? The important question is: at the end of each day are you satisfied with the decisions you’ve made?”

Heather Mac Donald
“A straight line can be drawn between family breakdown and youth violence. In Chicago’s poor black neighborhoods, criminal activity among the young has reached epidemic proportions. It’s a problem that no one, including the Chicago Police Department, seems able to solve. About 80 percent of black children in Chicago are born to single mothers. They grow up in a world where marriage is virtually unheard of and where no one expects a man to stick around and help raise a child.”
Heather Mac Donald, The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe

“I know grace and mercy was raised
by the same single mother.”
Jasmine Mans, Black Girl, Call Home

Lauren Beukes
“The mother opens her perfect mouth, and any guilt Gabi is feeling is
allayed by the incredible stupid that comes out of it. ‘I hope not. I really
hope not. You being a single mother and all.’ It’s worse than patronizing.
It’s matronizing.
Broken Monsters
pg 281”

“Removing someone out of your life
Can hurt like a knife,
But sometimes, it may be the only way for you to survive.”
Mouloud Benzadi

Abhijit Naskar
“Do you know what strength is - forgetting sleep, romance, money I keep working without rest to unite the humans, that's my strength - a single mother working day and night so her child can have a bright future, that's her strength - a street vendor working hard since dawn for his family, that's his strength. Do you have such a strength of your own? Your ancestry, your family money, your material possessions - putting aside all these, what is your own true strength?”
Abhijit Naskar, Ain't Enough to Look Human

“Longing for someone to give meaning to your life indicates a lack of personal goals and aspirations.”

“Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, we may not be able to stay together,
but our true love and the precious moments we shared will last forever.”

Victor Vote
“When you tell a single parent you love them or you want to date them, its not like the conventional love or dating... what they call love is care, empathy, understanding and respect from a perspective that is beyond just saying I LOVE YOU. They have loved, they have seen; there is nothing you'll offer that is different. All they need is peace of mind and if you are not coming to give that, please leave them alone with their kids”
Victor Vote

“Christina died of a stroke in the fall of 1971, at the age of sixty-one.
June watched the nurses take her mother's body away. Standing there in the hospital, June felt like she'd been caught in an undertow.
How had she ended up here?
One woman all alone, with four kids, and a restaurant she had never wanted.
The day after the funeral, June took the kids to school. She dropped Kit off at the elementary building and then drove Nina, Jay, and Hud to junior high.
When they pulled into the drop-off circle, Jay and Hud took off. But Nina turned back, put her hand on the door handle, and looked at her mother.
'Are you sure you're OK?' Nina asked. 'I could stay home. Help you at the restaurant.'
'No, honey,' June said, taking her daughter's hand. 'If you feel up for going to school, then that's where you should be.'
'OK,' Nina said. 'But if you need me, come get me.'
'How about we think of it the other way around?' June said, smiling. 'If you need me, have the office call me.'
Nina smiled. 'OK'
June felt herself about to cry and so she put her sunglasses over her eyes and pulled out of the parking lot. She drove, with the window down, to Pacific Fish. She pulled in and put on the parking brake. She took a deep breath. She got out of the car and stood there, staring up at the restaurant with a sense of all that she had inherited. It was hers now, whatever that meant.
She lit a cigarette.”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, Malibu Rising

Mouloud Benzadi
“The hardest thing in life is to find yourself with someone, so close to you yet so far.”
