I am a mother of two and wife of an amazing husband who is incredible when it comes to being a dad. If my 4-year-old daughter could have an e-mail address, imagine her writing her dad's story, even though I will be typing: My dad flies planes for the Navy for his real job, but it's no secret his secret job is as a musician. He tells me all the time that I need to serve others and that this life is not about me. I don't get it sometimes, but I'll take his word for it. He keeps telling me about the kids in other countries and how I need to be thankful for the food, clothes and house that I have. 

My dad is going to some country called Africa and is going to write 10 songs in 10 days in the hopes of inspiring generations into global action. I don't even know what global action is, but it sounds important. My dad does a lot of cool things like color with me, take me to the park and take care of my mommy. He tells me that going to Africa to write 10 songs in 10 days is his way to raise awareness. Sometimes I wish I could raise his awareness about me not getting enough candy.
