Holly Carmichael: Should we be happy that ‘nobody’s dead’

ADF Attorney Holly Carmichael at Townhall: “Despite the pain of absence or loss, the void left by a missing parent serves a valuable purpose: it drives us to seek something we know is missing. In other words, the fatherless know they are missing something, and that can motivate them to seek strong and healthy father and husband roles and replacements. The void gives them a model to work toward. Pretending there is no void only perpetuates the harm.”
