'Would they wonder who I was? would they wonder what I thought? Would they lack for my approval, my discipline, my voice?' Three days later he thought a way to give them that voice. he would contact six men from all the passages of his life and ask them to be a constant presence in his childrens' lives. And he would call this group 'The Council of Dads'.
