An Inspiration for all of us. For all you dads! To me all dad's are Hero's

I found this beautiful story on YouTube today on YouTube.
I have watched various versions of this video and encourage the viewer to do the same as it will give more background on this father son team.

For people who have trouble with the Jesus stuff, please look past that and appreciate the story.  I promise you will not regret it.

Here's to all the dads...

For my beautiful daughter, Clara, Happy Birthday my love...

...our deepest fear is not we are inadequate,
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful
beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most
frightens us.
Your playing small does not serve the 
There is nothing enlightened about
shrinking so that other people won't feel 
insecure around you.
We were all meant to shine,
As children do.
It's not just in some of us,
It's in everyone.
and as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

An Indian Prayer...

Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me! I am small and weak, I need your
strength and wisdom

LET ME WALK IN BEAUTY, and make my eyes
ever behold the red and purple sunset

MAKE MY HANDS respect the things you have
made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.

MAKE ME WISE so that I may understand the
things you have taught my people.  

LET ME LEARN the lessons you have hidden
in every leaf and rock.

I SEEK STRENGTH, not to be greater than my
brother, but to fight my greatest enemy---myself.

MAKE ME ALWAYS READY to come to you with
clean hands and straight eyes.
