A Letter to My Son, Whom I Love Unconditionally

Shared by Mark Herzlich



I felt an opportunity to raise a young man who finds his worth in building the worth of others. I felt an opportunity to raise a young man who creates safety for those around him.

I felt an opportunity to raise a young man who respects people not for their worldly position or achievements, but for their humanity. I felt an opportunity to raise a young man who will pull a master off of a prisoner’s neck, because it is right. 

I felt an opportunity to raise a young man who will ask if she is okay, who will ask if this is okay, and will ask again because in that moment “she is greater than I”. I felt an opportunity to raise a young man who leads his followers in faith, in love and humility because he knows that in every moment “He is greater than I”.

Today I watched. 

Today I was reminded of the weight of fatherhood. A weight that I will never take for granted. 

It is my greatest honor to raise you into the good man I know you will become.
