happy father's day to all the dads!


Even though stories of loving parents playing a nurturing role in their children’s lives rarely make headlines, they are the quiet backdrop to more sensational stories of tragedy and violence that seem to dominate the news. Images of loving and nurturing dads are even harder to come by, despite countless everyday examples of humble heroism.

This Father’s Day, we are celebrating those everyday heroes who are simply trying to be the best dads they can be.

Following up on last year’s “Stormtrooper Father’s Day” tribute, Episode II focuses in on the nurturing and loving characteristics in all dads. The dark side of the force may be a formidable opponent, but with concerted effort and deep-rooted hope, the love and light in each of us can shine through.

Thanks to the glorious photos of Kristina Alexanderson and the gorgeous music of Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, we are delighted to take you “somewhere over the rainbow” to this new nurturing world, where dreams really do come true.
