Father’s Day Has A Different Meaning To Each Of Us
A father figure often has a huge role in providing for us and shaping our lives.
Like many of us, our Members of Parliament (MPs) look up to their respective father figures for provision, assistance, and wisdom.
On Father’s Day, we give recognition to what our personal father figures have done for us. While many posted on various social media platforms, our MPs did the same, paying tribute to the husbands, fathers, and grandfathers.
MustShareNews brings you 15 of the best Father’s Day Facebook messages from our Members of Parliament to their own personal father figures, in no particular order.
1. Zaqy Mohamad (Chua Chu Kang GRC)
In his Father’s Day message, Zaqy has a meaningful message for all of us — it takes more than just plain biological relation between a father and his child for the father to be a meaningful dad in the child’s life.
Here is the above quote in full:
Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad, and that’s why I call you dad, because you are so special to me. You taught me the game and you taught me how to play it right.
– Wade Boggs
