He made this Voicethread in 2007 at the age of 85. The VoiceThread is on his personal account which I can’t access at this time, so I embedded it here because I couldn’t get a media file.
Andrew reminded me of the TV program Father Knows Best. He was a role model to my sister and I. He made us feel grown up from a very early age. His wisdom and perspective on life has made us who we are. We are positive and take life as is. Our father instilled the Serenity Prayer in us at a very early age.
The Serenity Prayer was written by the American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr (1892–1971).
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference
