Father, Son

Obama and Senior

Now we are no longer slaves but God's own sons. And since we are his sons, everything he has belongs to us, for that is the way God planned. (Galatians 4:7)

A son bears the imprint of the father - even if absent. Yet there is a process of willing adoption and acceptance.

In his book, James Frey found himself adopted by Leonard, who somehow had the knack for knowing what he was going through and what he needed, despite his past abuses with alcohol and drugs and his near depressive state.

Many accounts abound, of talented and achieving people who caught something from their dads - even women do.

Guess that explains the yearning for a father, friend and mentor.
