This is a personal piece.
as a divorced single father, I will go 6 days without seeing my children...sometimes I have to go 6 days without even hearing their voices. Its is not by choice, believe me, and I have begged for more time with my only children. So when finally I do see my children, I am trying to fit 6 days of love, affection, structure, and encouragement into 8 hours.
I love my children more than life itself, and they are my world. But no man, no father should go 6 days without his children.
