Message from the Q:

  Hey y’all… I just want to start off and say how much I appreciate you all. My anniversary was actually on Monday the 6th, but since I’m the Site Q of Futurama, I wanted to Q today. In addition, I wanted to take advantage of another special day. My parents had their anniversary this past Tuesday, July 7 in which they got married right here in the Rose Garden of Memorial Park in 1984. Now, I will be honest and say that I was never really close to my father. He was in and out of the house when I was growing up, there were some infidelity issues in which my father had two additional children, and he was a fireman so he had a 24hr work schedule… so you could say my mom basically raised my siblings and I (I’m the youngest of four) by herself. My father ended up passing away three years ago. 

However, I learned something monumental during his passing. I realized that as an individual, I put high expectations on other folks. I feel if I’m going to commit then I need you to commit. With that being said, I challenged my father growing up because he never “fit” what I thought a father should be. He never took me hunting, never played catch in the yard with me, heck, he didn’t even teach me how to shave. I took that as he didn’t love me because of his absences. But as he was passing, I realized that he did love me, but in his own way. And that taught me that we truly are all different and have different perspectives. Since he was the way he was, it shaped me out the man I am today… and I’m thankful.

I’m thankful and appreciative of all you fathers/dads that are out there. It brings joy to my heart when I hear stories about your interactions with your 2.0s and I think to myself, “yes, those dads really do exist, and thank goodness they do!” Our society is forever changing and if we are constant role models and support our sons and daughters, they are going to turn into phenomenal individuals. So, I see you. I see all you fathers/dads in F3. Keep doing what you’re doing because it truly matters. As an educator, I’ve seen some tough family situations, let alone experienced them, so when I see the positivity and joy imbued out of the conversations we had, it truly warmed my heart. I’m looking forward to the fatherhood chapter in my life, I’m not ready now, but soon will be and you all inspire me. I’m so appreciative to have you all and have F3 in my life.

Happy 1 Year! Thank you gentlemen!

Aye!
