Sam Katz – Atlanta
Upcoming on June 20 will be Father’s Day. My dad has always been one of my main idols growing up and always will be. He taught me how to do many different activities and was a main part of my childhood. Fathers are so important because they teach you many things that other people cannot. For example, he taught me how to play baseball, basketball and football. Even when he just got surgery, we still got to spend time together watching Shark Week on TV and watching movies in his room while he recovered. Dads are a very important part of one’s childhood. My dad, even when he couldn’t do much, still managed to make sure I had a great childhood. He had back surgery and could not do much. I was very upset when I was younger because I realized many of the things I wanted to do with my dad I couldn’t. He could not go on carnival rides or go on family runs with us. This occurrence made me realize how much I took my dad for granted, and now I appreciate every second I have with him. All dads should be celebrated and respected on this June 20.
