President Obama's 2014 Father's Day proclamation salutes all dads, 'married or single, gay or straight'

fathers day proclamation

From President Barack Obama's Presidential Proclamation – Father's Day 2014:

With encouragement and unconditional love, fathers guide their children and help them envision brighter futures. They are teachers and coaches, friends and role models. They instill values like hard work and integrity, and teach their kids to take responsibility for themselves and those around them. This is a task for every father -- whether married or single, gay or straight, natural or adoptive -- and every child deserves someone who will step up and fill this role. My Administration proudly supports dads who are not only present but also involved, who meet their commitments to their sons and daughters, even if their own fathers did not.
