A Real Dad and A Real Hero

I didn't know Richard Kerr. He was a founding Father of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity at his school, Queens University, like I was at my old college. He was my age and had a four year old child like me. So, we had some things in common. He was also a father of three.

Some folks say there aren't any good dad's left. I say Richard Kerr was a great Dad. He made sure his son got to safety. He sacrificed himself for his son. He almost made it too. It is sad he did not make it. His family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Here is an article about his heroic deed, when he and his child were caught in a rip tide off the Atlantic Coast in Florida.  Link.
