An absent father also missed the moments of experiencing and guiding the steps of the child that graduated from college, won a Grammy Award, successfully litigated a legal case, performed open heart surgery or got married; had his or her first child and pondered, what kind of father would willingly miss any of these moments.

So if Father’s Day approaches and you are contemplating the moment when things went terribly wrong, stop and start all over again! Witness the joy of the fathers around you and realize that, in an instant, circumstances do change. Pick up the phone; send a card or turn on your Skype.  Begin with “I’m sorry. I love you”. Push past the guilt and shame, and realize that whether you’ve been absent for a day or more than a decade, it’s never too late to begin becoming the best father that you can. Whenever you start, it will be the moment that matters most.- -Kobie Brown

Mr Kobie Brown in fulfilling multiple roles as a music executive, writer, songwriter, and producer, he has worked with songwriters Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and has produced records by Lauryn Hill. One of his current projects is the production of a documentary film entitled From Fatherless to Fatherhood, which explores the importance of effective fatherhood in the African-American community. The documentary was inspired by Brown’s recollection of a classmate’s experience growing up without a father. According to Brown, he realized through his classmate’s story “the emotional, economic and spiritual strains created by father absence” in the African-American community. He decided that with the explosion of digital devices and social networking sites, his classmate’s story would best be told as a documentary. Brown’s “The Kobie Chronicles” can be found on Twitter.
