NPR’s Morning Edition had a nice, heart-warming segment this morning featuring a father and son, John Heins and his son David, discussing their thoughts about being fathers that I think is well worth your time to listen to. You can find it at this link. The audio should be up later today or tomorrow, if it isn’t yet available when you check the link.
It’s an example of the two of them saying things to each other that each might wish they had said if one of them were suddenly taken away and the opportunity to say those things were eliminated. It caused me to think about the quote from Harriet Beecher Stowe in which she said, “The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.”
