When I was a little girl, it seemed to me that my father knew everything, was capable of anything and even in charge of the world. He was the man who saved me from all kinds of problems. A little tough maybe, but I knew, he was the person who cared most about my health, who would be up waiting no matter how late I went home, and who would worry if I fell in love with a wrong guy. I could always count on him. A father! A savior! A hero!
Last month, I went back home to celebrate my father’s birthday. After drifting away happily all these years, it hit me the first time that it was my father who looked so elderly and fragile. The mighty hero is gone. I can’t help feeling sorry for him, and perhaps, for myself.
Ladies and gentlemen, the meeting theme this time is “My Father”. Good or bad, gentle or harsh, close or distant, we all have our fathers. What’s your father like? What do you think a father should be? And what kind of father you wish for your children? On Tuesday night, please join us and let’s talk about fathers.
Meanwhile, we’ll have 3 speeches at the meeting.
Let’s look forward to their exciting performances.
