 Chewie World Order: Father and Daughter
Fathers must surely have no idea the weighty consequence of their every word and action upon their daughters' future well-being.
When a father leaves a young daughter behind, he creates a crevasse of the heart that she will never be able to fill, and dooms her to a life of trying.
When a father, such as my own, tells his daughter she is special, smart, one-of-a-kind, female when it counts and male when it's called for, he is taking the best that one human being has to offer another and secreting it away for her in a trust fund she will never bankrupt.
