Father's Day Special
I remember this song, a 1974 hit, when I was a small child. The lesson got lost on me then - I just liked it because of the familiar nursery rhyme references. It wasn't until Ugly Kid Joe made it popular again in the early 1990's, and I was about to have my first child, that the meaning of the song truly sunk in. I was touched by the sadness, and took the warning of the message of 'actions speak louder than words' to heart. I try to keep that in mind each day with my children, with those near and dear to me, and hope that my children will learn to value each other, family, and those close to them.
