On his Facebook page this morning, Sen. Ted Cruz celebrated Father’s Day by paying tribute to his father Rafael, who left Cuba to come to America.
My own Dad has been my hero my entire life. He is a man of faith and deep integrity, a man who loves liberty with all his heart. His truly American story of fleeing oppression in Cuba with nothing more than $100 to his name and finding success through hard work and perserverence has inspired me my entire life. Today, my Dad is a pastor, and through his life I have seen every day his love and faith in Jesus. Each Dad should endeavor to reflect our heavenly Father’s love for us, and my Dad has done that throughout my life.
Cruz also recognized fathers across the nation, reminding them that “there’s no more important job than being a father ” and that a “strong, loving Dad gives every child the foundation he or she needs to brave this world.”
