The following video is one of the weekly videos that President Obama produces each and every week. This week's topic is Father's Day which is today, June 16, 2013. The President highlights his life with his parents and how important a dad is in a family. He mentions how he wasn't as connected with his father as he really should have been. He explains how he supports government that supports family values. He mentions a few personal moments with his family and how important it is to show unconditional love to our children.
Every mom and dad and child, regardless of political affiliation, should watch this video. It's not about Congress, and the bills that they pass, do not pass and are trying to pass. It's not about the politically divided parties that seem to have a very negative effect on the country. It's all about family, fatherhood, and the values instilled by members of the family.
Immediately below, President Obama hosts a Father's Day luncheon in the State Dining Room to celebrate the importance of strong families and mentorship. June 14, 2013.
