Each one of us, a father, a victim of discrimination, is like a
drop in a sea of discrimination where each drop is insignificant to
those trillions of drops around it. The world is overwhelmed by the
many forms of discrimination. Fathers, and the causes by which they
are discriminated, have become insignificant and are ignored because
no one hears their plight. Men, by their nature, are afraid to stand
up for their rights to be fathers and to be respected as fathers. In today's
world, just like the many drops of water in the sea, fathers are
transparent, invisible. Yet everyone in the world has a father.
