Washington DC (USA): The examples that fathers set and the lessons they impart about hard work, dedication to family and believing in oneself establish the moral foundation for success, US President Donald Trump has said in his Father’s Day message.

“Fathers have the ability and responsibility to instill in us core values we carry into adulthood. The examples they set and the lessons they impart about hard work, dedication to family, faith in God, and believing in ourselves establish the moral foundation for success that allows us to live up to our full potential,” Trump said yesterday in a proclamation declaring June 18 as Father’s Day.

As sons and daughters, we recognise the love they have given and the sacrifices they have made, and we celebrate the indispensable role fathers play in our lives and communities, Trump said.

“We remember those fatherly moments big and small– throwing a baseball, writing an essay, driving a car, walking down the aisle– that have shaped us, and we thank our dads for being there with a helping hand and an open heart,” he said.

Trump said that Father’s Day is a special occasion that reminds people to pauseand thank the men in their lives who have taken on the responsibility of raising children.

“Day in and day out, fathers put their children first, creating loving and supportive environments. Whether by birth,adoption, or foster care, today we honour the incredible fathers in our lives for all they have done and continue to do for us,” he said.

“Fathers inspire us to better ourselves and to be men and women of outstanding character. We recommit ourselves asindividuals, families, and communities to promoting and supporting fatherhood, and take this day to express our love andappreciation for fathers across our country,” Trump said.
A joint resolutionof the Congress approved on April24, 1972, June18 as Father’s Day.

Since then every year the president proclaims this date as Father’s Day.

“I call on US government officials todisplay the flag of the US on all government buildings on Father’s Day and invite state and local governments and the people of the US to observe Father’s Day with appropriate ceremonies,” he said.
