“My Punching Bag” A #MustRead Piece My Nephew Wrote About His Dad, My Brother

IMG_4361Just when I thought I couldnt respect someone anymore than I already do, I read this article by my nephew Eric Ginsburg. The depth and insight he has is incredible for a young man of 25. Its an article everyone should read, a son’s story to his father. Eric is a professional journalist at @YesWeekly in NC.

Here is a brief excerpt; click the link to see the full piece http://bit.ly/10iE5Yc

I stood on his chest, triumphant and jubilant. Donning red overalls on top of a Waldo-esque red-andwhite striped shirt, I dropped down to slap him repeatedly on both sides of his face.

“Don’t hurt Daddy!” he said playfully, as I shifted to squeezing his cheeks with vigor, laughing in enjoyment.

“You’ve got to be careful, you could hurt my face, honey,” he said. “You don’t seem concerned.”

  1. Great story. Fine young man. My three son’s can surely relate to Eric’s tale. I read it to my middle son who now has two son’s of his own. His reaction was interesting. He said, “I’m pretty sure I’ll be a punching bag one day.” His boys are nearly 2 and 2 mos.
