Have you ever stopped to think about the origins of Father’s Day?
In 1910 the daughter of an American veteran. Sonara Dodd led the efforts for her father to be recognized after a mother’s day sermon in church.
She felt that her father needed to be recognized too cause he took care of six children after her mother passed away while giving birth to their 6th child.
The movement gained momentum in 1924.
Finally, in 1972 president Nixon signed it into the law and became recognized as a public holiday.
