Writing 101 Pieces of Advice for Son Is Made of Happy

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

This blog is by a wonderful person I know. He was my boss for 3 summers when I was in college, and he’s remained a friend, even though we are on different coasts. He is a family man now and has a blog where he writes down advice he has for his son.

This is a short intro into one piece of advice. His father wrote him a letter that he wants to pass on to his son. Multigenerational families who truly love each other are definitely made of happy.

96 – Avoid fighting, but not at all costs

Dear David,

This is one of my favorite photos of you and Grandpa.

Grandpa is my Daddy. His name is also David. I named you after him. That is one way that I could honor him for being such a good Daddy to me.

But before Grandpa was my Daddy, he was a Soldier. He was one of many soldiers, who together, quite literally saved the whole world, when the whole world was having a great big war. They didn’t want to fight, but they had to. Because sometimes if you don’t fight, things can get much worse.
