Father's Day is within sight. This means Dads can expect a book or a power tool, a round of golf or an afternoon in the hammock. But what America becomes in the coming years will largely depend on the gifts that Dads give their children.
Our children can navigate the Web, and if we give them back their natural birthright, they can also navigate the woods and the beaches. One Green Hour a day -- maybe that's all it takes to restore not only our kids, but also our habitats.
I'm giving Father's Day a nod of respect this year, because I finally get what it's all about. It's about your kid succeeding where you failed, and the amazingly good feeling that comes with such a sweet defeat.
