875 – “My father had a favorite: saying: ‘Whoever does not talk to his father never knows what his grandfather said.’ He was trying to express the linear quality or wisdom. His morality was not something that he made up on his own; it had been given to him by his own father and his grandfather before that, a mixture of Hutus and Tutsis stretching back hundreds of years to the time out of memory when our people had migrated to this hilly triangle between lakes.”

–Paul Rusesabagina

Today is Father’s Day, if you have the chance visit or speak to your father today.
