When one of my children chooses a life partner, my hope is their union will be celebrated and supported near and far, regardless of whom they love.
This is the first Father's Day that I don't have a father to call or to send a silly card to, but I'll do what he did on Sunday, bellow hymns from a pew.
Many people regard my father as a hero. And he is my hero as well. But of course his impact and influence in my life go beyond the public story of protests and activism.
