Well, the media is in frenzy. It seems that every man is or has been acting terrible. They are groping, showing, or doing things that are wrong plus it is just so ungentlemanly.
Is there a good man out there? Where did all the good men go?
Whenever you go digging around in the past of someone’s life there is a chance that you are going to find something that will disappoint you about them.
This was my fear as I dug in to write Football Flyboy about my dad during WW2. I had all his letters that revealed his thoughts and actions as a young man. I have to admit there were a few biases that I wasn’t sure about. He quickly turned those around which pleased me.
What was interesting is that to stay true to his wife, he made himself write every single day. He never missed one day. He talked about others going to town and their infidelities. He purposely did not go into the towns during his tours. He even stated in the letters that he wanted to avoid the temptation that he thought might tempt him.
These are ideas that he taught me growing up. If you think you might get in trouble by going to a place- you probably will.
Little did I know, I was about to embark on a journey that would redefine my father and let me see how his personal experiences accumulated to reveal his wisdom.
