Before he became a family man, Ronald E. Glover I was a soldier.
Twenty years ago I lost my father when I needed him more than ever. I wasn’t really sure how the rest of my life was going to play out. Dad wasn’t the preachy type on life’s lessons. The life that he lived serves as my compass as I navigate through my life as father, son, brother and companion. As an African-American male raising his family in the aftermath of the Civil Rights Movement and Viet Nam War, Dad’s work was cut out for him.
Looking back on the moments with my father that I’ve chosen to share, I was unquestionably one of the fortunate ones.
