Time For Reflection
Paw Prints: Writings of the maddog
Sunday, June 15th is "Fathers Day" in the United States, and while I have never been married and have no "blood-line" children of my own, my favorite breakfast restaurant was overflowing with families celebrating and this has caused a bit of reflection.
For those of you who are parents and are hunched over your computer terminal today (or tomorrow, or the next day), take the time to reach out to your family and show them you love them.
For those of you who are not parents think about volunteering to talk about Free Software, or even software in general, at a local school or youth organization.
Even though it is "Fathers Day", I also make these suggestions for females and those who consider themselves too young to have children.
