Take the temperature of this country, not just on the salaciousness seeking evening news, but in classrooms and courtroom, and you’ll see the symptoms of an epidemic eating away at society. Our nations dropout rate is at a fever pitch, teen pregnancy leaves our urban centers stricken and criminal activity rates among our youth are nauseating. Our children have been infected by Fatherless-ness. Social scientist and educators have used stats and anecdotal evidence to point out the lack of fathers as the culprit in this cultural sickness, but where can you go to find men who are actively acting as a cure? Here at the Angle we are dedicated to exploring the scourge of fatherless-ness, especially by highlighting fathers as they shed light on their journey’s as leaders in their families. Tune in regularly as we update this conversation as we collectively find the cure for this epidemic.
