Byrd's Eye View... byU.S. Senator Robert C. Byrd Remembering Dad Sunday, June 21, is Father's Day. Father's Day does not have quite the aura of Mother's Day, but it is cer- tainly meaningful tha| our country also sets aside a day to pay tribute to fathers. Although men might handle their parenting roles in many .dJffer, et~t ways, a good father, like a good mother, is basically a nurturer. Chil- dren need the warm and protective presence of a father figure m their growing years. In my Father's Day remarks in 1988, I pointed out: "A society without a strong sense of fatherhood is courting an mcrease in personal and social problems among its young people." An English proverb says that "one father is worth more than 100 school- masters." When I think back on how much I learned from my coal-mining dad. I know that. despite the poverty and hardships of my youth, I was truly blessed by his presence in my life. The example of strength and wisdom. tempered by love, which the father provides in the home is extremely important to the development of a child. The idea of making Father's Day a national day of recognition is credited to Mrs. Sonora Smart Dodd, of the state of Washington, who began to champion the idea of Father's Day in 1909, after listening to a Mother's Day sermon. It was in 1972 that President Nixon established the third Sunday of June as a permanent national observance of Father's Day. But the people of West Virginia can take pridein know- ing that the first observance of Father's Day took place in our ~wn State. On December 6. 1907. a horrible mine explosion at Monogah killed more than 360 coal miners. The ex- pl.0sion.t.eft more~than 1,000 children .fatherless. Soon after that tragedy, Ms. Grace Clayton proposed to her mmtster, Dr. Robert Webb. the pastor of the Williams Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church South ( now known as Central United Methodist Church) of Fairmont, that fathers be given a day to be honored and remembered. "It was partly the explosion that set me to think how important and loved most fathers are." she explained. As a result, on July 5, 1908. the church celebrated the first Father's Day. This was just two months after the first Mother's Day service had been held 20 miles away, near Grafton. on May 10, 1908. What a tribute to West Virginia family values - - that both Mother's and Father's Days were first celebrated in our state! In 1985. the state of West Virginia erected a historical marker declaring Fairmont as the site where Fathers Day was first observed. This Father's Day, I encourage you to keep Ms. Clayton's words in mind. Show your dad "how ~mportant and loved" he is. And to all West Virginia dads. let me personally wish you a happy Father' s Day ! Get Your Ducks in a Row.... Before starting a business!
