Story behind this Day
The whole world is celebrating Father’s Day but who knows Sonora Smart Dodd? She is an American woman raised by her father single-handedly after her mother passed away.
While listening to a Mother’s Day sermon with her father at the Central Methodist Church in 1909, Dodd was bothered by the fact that there is not a day to express gratitude to her civil war veteran father who raised her and her five younger brothers alone. She wanted the celebration to be nationwide on June 5, her father’s birthday. But certain planning issues pushed the first-ever Father day celebration to 19 June,1910, as per news reports. Soon the idea gained momentum and got sanctioned. Later President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day in 1966.
A famous historical reference says:
“Either we honor both our parents, mother, and father, or let us desist from honoring either one. But to single out just one of our two parents and omit the other is the most grievous insult imaginable.”

Commemorate the real blessings:
“Am I forgetting something the extravagant I have
How to express my love for him,
When he is already busy to bless,
Every single second I spend,
Going to work without any complaints,
Sparing the piece of his bread,
To make sure my craving ends,
Working daily without any holiday,
Just to make us bless,
He’s no superpower,
He’s my dad, most ordinary man,
Turned into real hero aka blessing I have..”
