Mike Rowe Delivers Heartfelt Message About The Importance Of Dads: ‘Epidemic Of Fatherlessness’
Mike and the crew are in Yuma Arizona to meet Carlos Flores, a remarkable man who started BRAG. A bully rehab awareness gym that is doing its part to combat the bullying epidemic.
“I know this is controversial, and I’m sorry to inject an uncomfortable element into a post about a ‘feel-good’ show, but I think it’s important to consider the possibility that this thing we like to call ‘an epidemic of bullying,’ is really an epidemic of fatherlessness…”
Mike Rowe shared an important message about fatherhood on Facebook Tuesday.
It may not be politically correct, but it’s something his fans will love to hear.
“A couple years ago, when Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were getting divorced, Jolie was quoted as saying, ‘It never even crossed my mind that my son would need a father,’” Rowe wrote.
“I was struck by her comment, and I remember wondering how many other Americans might share her view. At the time, I didn’t think many. But today, I’m convinced the number is significant. I’m also amazed at how quickly fatherhood has fallen out of favor. Can you imagine a celebrity–or anyone for that matter – saying such a thing just twenty years ago?” More
Mike Rowe is one of the few inspirational people left in America. He’s a no-nonsense Patriotic American and an unapologetic one at that!
This makes sense. I’ve been involved in coaching youth sports for a couple decades with kids from all backgrounds. Having a father figure is a big deal, kids need both parents to be involved in their life. Or at least a positive male role model to help in that dynamic.
