Private: Why We Love Our Fathers

Father’s Day is just around the corner and I would like to dedicate this post to all the wonderful fathers around the world, father figures, or all male mentors who have impacted someone’s life in a positive way. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate all of you.

As you read these tributes, celebrate your love for you fathers by words or actions. The love for them will not be received unless we express it today. Show your dad some love today. Give or send him a card. Tell him that you love him.

I present to you “Why We Love Our Fathers” by the Students of WKU…


  • Fahad Alnahari, (Saudia Arabia)

“I love my dad because he is the one who taught me how to be proud of myself and always look forward to good things no matter what. He always told me to love my family and to always respect my elders. He believes in me and pushes me to do things that I think I can’t do.

  • Zeyad Attia, (Egypt)

“To be a dad you don’t have to be blood related to that person. A dad is someone who cares for you and it can be anyone who has mentored you throughout your life. Thank you, dad, for loving me. You are the best.”


  • Marah Qasem (Lebanon & Palestine)

“Although I don’t have a relationship with my biological father, I do know that I have several male mentors in my life. I consider them to be my father figure. A father is there for you 24 hours of the day and will never leave when something goes wrong and these mentors have done that for me. Thank you to all the fathers out there.”


  • Anonymous student (China)

“My father died when I was 3 years old. I know that my father loved me and for that I am very lucky. Although, I do not remember you thank you for giving me life.”
