"For those deeply missing their dads right about know, Natalia, Bianka, Capri, Gianna and so many impacted by COVID-19 and just the trials and tribulations of life, truly we can say "Daddy, Changed the World!" I can say "Do Not Dismay Whatever Betide God Will Take Care of you.  Fathers famous to the world or just famous to their families, change our world. If your Dad is still in the earth realm reach out to him.  If things are not so good, love, forgiveness and the help of God Our Heavenly Father can make all things beautiful in its own time.  Fathers you can reach out to your children as well as you may think they should reach out to you.  Who's been here the longest? Be the wise man! 
And if COVID-19 does not have you reaching out to your Heavenly Father,people, time to take time in this world-wide timeout! " Jackie Wright, Founder & President, Wright Enterprises
