Today day is a memorable day, are the annual Father's Day!
Deep sea motherly love, fatherly love heavy as a mountain. People at the same time to celebrate Mother's Day and did not forget his father's achievements. Someone start the year on the recommendation of Father's Day. Years, it is to celebrate the first Father's Day. At that time, the late father of all people have to wear a white rose, the father of the people alive while wearing red roses. This custom has been passed so far.
It is said that the selection of Father's Day is a month over month because of the sun are the most heated one, a symbol of the father to give their children the love that hot. Paternal such as mountains, tall and lofty, let me look timid and afraid to climb Health; father such as days,and far-reaching, so that Yang and my heart did not dare pity; paternal great deep are pure and not return , but love is a bitter, difficult to understand depression and the unattainable.
Father, like a tree, always, let him lush foliage of a solid arm for the tree to create shadeus. Years such as the fingers over the water, like, before I knew it, we have grown up, while the tree is gradually aging, and even the new leaves are no longer the hair full of vitality. Annually on the third Sunday is father's holiday, let us sincerely say: Father, I love you! Happy Father's Day!
Now, the Certificate of Education Examination and the final exams approaching, I suggest that we should seize the time, study hard, with excellent results as to the father's gift, great father to return, I believe his father at that time are the most beautiful smile! Students, come on now! ! !
good morning. its good to be home on this fathers day with my girls, and its an honor to spend some time with all of you today in the house of our lord.早上好。在家里陪伴我的女儿是一件乐事，在教堂与各位共度也是我的荣幸。
at the end of the sermon on the mount, jesus closes by saying, whoever hears these words of mine, and does them, shall be likened to a wise man who built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock. [matthew 7: 24-25]在《登山宝训》的结尾，耶稣最后说：“无论谁听了我的话，并付诸实践，都应该会成为一位能在坚石上建造房屋的智者。大雨过后，洪水泛滥，狂风怒号，击打屋舍，但房屋不倒，是因为其建立在坚石之上。”(马太福音，第七章24-25)
of all the rocks upon which we build our lives, we are reminded today that family is the most important. and we are called to recognize and honor how critical every father is to that foundation. they are teachers and coaches. they are mentors and role models. they are examples of succeand the men who constantly push us toward it.今天，在我们建立我们的生活的所有基础之上，我们应该记得家庭是最重要的。在此基础
but if we are honest with ourselves, well admit that what too many fathers also are is missing - missing from too many lives and too many homes. they have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. and the foundations of our families are weaker because of it.倘如我们对自己诚实，我们就不得不承认：太多的父亲从太多的生活，太多的家庭中消失。他们像男孩一样地放弃了他们的责任，而没有表现得像男人。因此，我们家庭的基础变得薄弱。
how many times in the last year has this city lost a child at the hands of another child? how many times have our hearts stopped in the middle of the night with the sound of a gunshot or a siren? how many teenagers have we seen hanging around on street corners when they should be sitting in a classroom? how many are sitting in prison when they should be working, or at least looking for a job? how many in this generation are we willing to lose to poverty or violence or addiction? how many?在过去的一年里，在这座城市中，多少孩子死于单挑斗殴?多少人在午夜睡梦中，随着一声枪响或一声警笛停止了心跳?我们曾看到多少孩子在街角闲逛，当他们本应坐在教室里的时候?多少人应在工作或至少找工作时，却被囚禁在监狱里?这一代人有多少是我们愿意在贫困、暴力和毒品中失去的?有多少?
yes, we need more cops on the street. yes, we need fewer guns in the hands of people who shouldnt have them. yes, we need more money for our schools, and morebut we also need families to raise our children. we need fathers to realize thatresponsibility does not end at conception. we need them to realize that what makes you a man is not the ability to have a child - its the courage to raise one.但我们同样需要家庭去抚养我们的孩子。我们需要父亲们认识到责任不是结束于受精。我们需要他们认识到：你之
we need to help all the mothers out there who are raising these kids by themselves; the mothers who drop them off at school, go to work, pick up them up in the afternoon, work another shift, get dinner, make lunches, pay the bills, fix the house, and all the other things it takes both parents to do. so many of these women are doing a heroic job, but they need support. they need another parent. their children need another parent. thats what keeps their foundation strong. its what keeps the foundation of our country strong.我们要帮助那些凭一己之力抚养孩子的母亲;母亲们将孩子送到学校，然后去工作，下午又将孩子从学校接回，开始另一份工作，做晚餐，做中餐，付学费，修理房子，而这一切都应由父母两人共同承担。多少母亲在独自承担如此纷繁复杂的工作，但她们需要支持。她们需要另一对父母。她们的子女需要另一对父母。这使她们的基础变得强大，这使整个国家的基础变得强大。 i know what it means to have an absent father, although my circumstances werent as tough as they are for many young people today. even though my father left us when i was two years old, and i only knew him from the letters he wrote and the stories that my family told, i was luckier than most. i grew up in hawaii, and had two wonderful grandparents from kansas who poured everything they had into helping my mother raise my sister and me - who worked with her to teach us about love and respect and the obligations we have to one another. i screwed up more often than i shouldve, but i got plenty of second chances. and even though we didnt have a lot
of money, scholarships gave me the opportunity to go to some of the best schools in the country. a lot of kids dont get these chances today. there is no margin for error in their lives. so my own story is different in that way.我知道这说明我曾有父爱的缺失，虽然我情况比起今天很多年轻人要好很多。即使我的父亲在我两岁时离开了我们，我也仅仅从他的书信和家人的讲述中了解他，但我比大多数人幸运很多。我在夏威夷长大，从堪萨斯来的祖父母倾其所有帮助母亲抚养我的姐姐和我。他们和母亲一道教育我们爱，尊重和对别人的责任。我比理论上更多地犯错，但为我总有第二次机会。虽然我们不怎么有钱，但奖学金给了我机会到全美一些最好的学校学习。今天，很多孩子却不能得到那样的机会。经济条件不允许他们在人生中有任何过失。所以，我自己的故事倒是有些不同。
still, i know the toll that being a single parent took on my mother - how she struggled at times to the pay bills; to give us the things that other kids had; to play all the roles that both parents are supposed to play. and i know the toll it took on me. so i resolved many years ago that it was my obligation to break the cycle - that if i could be anything in life, i would be a good father to my girls; that if i could give them anything, i would give them that rock - that foundation - on which to build their lives. and that would be the greatest gift i could offer.然而，我的确知道做一名像我母亲一样的单身母亲所需付出的代价――她怎样努力去为我们支付学费;给我们和其他孩子一样的东西;扮演父亲和母亲的角色。我也知道我所付出的代价。所以，我多年前就下定决心，把打破这循环作为我的责任――在我所能做的所有事中，我会做我女儿的好父亲;在所有我能给予她们的东西中，我会给她们一个坚实的基础，使她们能够在此之上建立自己的生活。而这也将是我所能给予她们的最好的礼物。 i say this knowing that i have been an imperfect father - knowing that i have made
mistakes and will continue to make more; wishing that i could be home for my girls and my
wife more than i am right now. i say this knowing all of these things because even as we are imperfect, even as we face difficult circumstances, there are still certain lessons we must strive to live and learn as fathers - whether we are black or white; rich or poor; from the south side or the wealthiest suburb.我虽这样说，但我当然知道我不是一个完美的父亲;我当然知道我犯了很多错误，也会继续犯更多错误;我也希望我能花比现在更多的时间在家里陪伴我的女儿和妻子。我这样说，因为我知道这一切都由于我们的不完美，由于我们所面对的困境，作为父亲，仍然有许多需要去努力学习，努力谋生――无论我们是黑人或白人;富有或贫困;来自南方或富人聚居的城郊。
education that requires.我们都知道：教育决定孩子的未来。我们知道他们将不仅的印地安那的孩子为好的职位竞争，他们将和印度、中国乃至全世界的孩子竞争。我们也知道全球化竞争对于工作、学习和文化程度的要求。
its up to us - as fathers and parents - to instill this ethic of excellence in our children. its up to us to say to our daughters, dont ever let images on tv tell you what you are worth, because i expect you to dream without limit and reach for those goals. its up to us to tell our sons, those songs on the radio may glorify violence, but in my house we live glory to achievement, self respect, and hard work. its up to us to set these high expectations. and that means meeting those expectations ourselves. that means setting examples of
excellence in our own lives.作为父母――我们应该灌输孩子们这种优秀的品行。我们应该
the second thing we need to do as fathers is paalong the value of empathy to our children. not sympathy, but empathy - the ability to stand in somebody elses shoes; to look at the world through their eyes. sometimes its so easy to get caught up in us, that we forget about our obligations to one another. theres a culture in our society that says remembering these obligations is somehow soft - that we cant show weakness, and so therefore we cant show kindness.第二，我们需要像父亲一样地关心孩子。不是同情，而是关心――学会换位思考;通过他们的眼睛观察这个世界的能力。有时，做“我们自己”是很容易的，因为我们忽视了我们对他人的义务。在我们的社会中，有一种观点说：牢记这些义务是不怎么容易的，我们不能表现出软弱，因此，我们也不能表现出仁慈。
but our young boys and girls see that. they see when you are ignoring or mistreating your wife. they see when you are inconsiderate at home; or when you are distant; or when you are thinking only of yourself. and so its no surprise when we see that behavior in our schools or on our streets. thats why we paon the values of empathy and kindneto our children by living them. we need to show our kids that youre not strong by putting other people down - youre strong by lifting them up. thats our responsibility as fathers.
and by the way - its a responsibility that also extends to washington. because if fathers are doing their part; if theyre taking our responsibilities seriously to be there for their
children, and set high expectations for them, and instill in them a sense of excellence and empathy, then our government should meet them halfway.不仅如此，到华盛顿去也是一种责任，因为，如果父亲们对孩子们履行着他们的责任，对孩子们给予期望，灌输孩子们优秀的品行、关心，我们的政府就应该在其中帮助他们。
hi, everybody. this father’s day weekend, i’d like to spend a couple minutes talking about what’s sometimes my hardest, but always my most rewarding job ?C being a dad.
i grew up without my father around. he left when i was two years old, and even though my sister and i were lucky
enough to have a wonderful mom and caring grandparents to raise us, i felt his absence. and i wonder what my life would have been like had he been a greater presence.从小父亲就不在我的身边。两岁时父亲离开了我们。但是我和妹妹很幸运，母亲和祖父母对我们关怀备至，将我们抚养成人。尽管如此，我仍然觉得父爱缺失。我时常想，如果父亲一直在我们的身边，我的人生可能就会不一样了。
that’s why i’ve tried pretty hard to be a good dad for my
own kids. i haven’t always succeeded, of course ?C in the past, my job has kept me away from home more than often i would like to, and the burden of raising two young
girls sometimes would fall too heavily on michelle.
but between my own experiences growing up, and my
ongoing efforts to be the best father i can be, i’ve learned a couple of things about what our children need most from their parents.
first and foremost, they need our time. and more important than the quantity of hours we spend with them is the quality of those hours. maybe it’s just asking about their day, or taking a walk together, but the smallest moments can have the biggest impact.
they also need structure, including learning the values of
self-discipline and responsibility. malia and sasha may live in the white house these days, but michelle and i still make sure they finish their schoolwork, do their chores, and walk the dog.
同时，他们也需要一种结构，包括需要了解自律和责任的价值。尽管玛莉亚和萨莎现在生活在白宫，但我和米歇尔还是要确保他们完成家庭作业，做好日常杂务，按时遛狗。 and above all, children need our unconditional love ?C
whether they succeed or make mistakes; when life is easy and when life is tough.最为重要的是，孩子们需要我们付出无条件的爱。无论他们是取得了成功，或是犯了错误，无论生活是舒适还是艰难。
and life is tough for a lot of americans today.more and more kids grow up without a father figure. others mia father who’s away serving his country in uniform. and even for those dads who are present in their children’s lives, the recession has taken a harsh toll. if you’re out of a job or struggling to pay the bills, doing whatever it takes to keep
the kids healthy, happy and safe can understandably take precedence over everything else.
that’s why my administration has offered men who want to be good fathers a little extra support. we’ve boosted
we’re doing this because we all have a stake in forging
stronger bonds between fathers and their children. and you
can find out more about some of what we’re doing at
but we also know that every father has a personal
responsibility to do right by our kids as well. all of us can encourage our children to turn off the video games and pick up a book. all of us can pack a healthy lunch for our son, or go outside and play ball with our daughter. and all of us can teach our children the difference between right and wrong, and show them through our own example the value in treating one another as we wish to be treated.
our kids are pretty smart. they understand that life won’t always be perfect, that sometimes, the road gets rough, that even great parents don’t get everything right.

Hi, everybody. Sunday is Father’s Day. If you haven’t got Dad a gift yet, there’s still time. Just barely. But the truth is, what we give our fathers can never match what our fathers give us.
I know how important it is to have a dad in your life, because I grew up without my father around. I felt the weight of his absence. So for Michelle and our girls, I try every day to be the husband and father my family didn’t have when I was young. And every chance I get, I encourage fathers to get more involved in their children’s lives, because what makes you a man isn’t the ability to have a child – it’s the courage to raise one.
Still, over the past couple years, I’ve met with a lot of young people who don’t have a father figure around. And while there’s nothing that can replace a parent, any of us can do our part to be a mentor, a sounding board, a role model for a kid who needs one. Earlier this year, I launched an initiative
called My Brother’s Keeper – an all-hands-on-deck effort to help more of our young men reach their full potential. And if you want to be a mentor to a young man in your community, you can find out how at WhiteHouse.gov/MyBrothersKeeper.
Now, when I launched this initiative, I said that government can’t play the primary role in a young person’s life. Taking responsibility for being a great parent or mentor is a choice that we, as individuals, have to make. No government program can ever take the place of a parent’s love. Still, as a country, there are ways we can help support dads and moms who make that choice.
That’s why, earlier this week, we brought working dads from across America to the White House to talk about the challenges they face. And in a few weeks, I’ll hold the first-ever White House Working Families Summit. We’ve still got too many workplace policies that belong in the 1950s, and it’s time to bring them up to date for today’s families, where oftentimes, both parents are working. Moms and dads deserve affordable child care, and time off to care for a sick parent or child without running into hardship. Women deserve equal pay for equal work – and at a time when more women
are breadwinners for a family, that benefits men, too. And because no parent who works full-time should have to raise a family in poverty, it’s time for Congress to follow the lead of state after state, get on the bandwagon, and give America a raise.
Dads work hard. So our country should do what we can to make sure their hard work pays off; to make sure life for them and their families is a little less stressful, and a little more secure, so they can be the dads their kids need them to be. Because there’s nothing more precious in life than the time we spend with our children. There’s no better feeling than knowing that we can be there for them, and provide for them, and help give them every shot at success.
Let’s make sure every dad who works hard and takes responsibility has the chance to know that feeling, not just on one Sunday, but every day of the year.
Thanks everybody, happy Father’s Day, and have a great weekend.
