June 13, 2014 (Scottsdale, AZ)
June 15th is the day to celebrate everything that fathers do for their children and loved ones. Every year, families get together and celebrate the most important men in their lives. Although it seems as if Father’s Day has been around forever, the official holiday has only been in existence for 40 years. In 1972, President Richard Nixon made Father’s Day an official federal holiday. That does not mean that fathers were not celebrated before then: Scholars claim that the tradition of honoring fathers is over 4,000 years old.
Today, children and family members will flock to stores, trying to find the perfect gift to show how much they care and appreciate the father in their life. It can be difficult not to get caught up in all the hype of spending the most amount of money, finding the most special and current gift. But often times, the best gift of all is a free one: spending time with your dad. Nothing compares to a smile from a loved one, the joy of spending time together and knowing that you are appreciated.
Here at Angel MedFlight, many of our fellow coworkers are fathers. They are all proud to fulfill that role in the lives of their children. As Angel MedFlight employees, they stand as good role models for everyone around them, showing how to be both a devoted father and a devoted employee. They show that passion for the job they do, and passion for being a father can coexist.
So, on Father’s Day and everyday, all of us at Angel MedFlight want to let all the fathers out there know that we appreciate them! Happy Father’s Day!
