A Eulogy for Our Fathers

I refuse to eulogize my father.
To eulogize him is to admit he is gone.
My father is not dead...

Kaito Nakamura taught me right from wrong.
What it means to be a hero.
So long as his lessons live on through me...
...he will never die.

My father taught me to understand that...
certain things are in God's hands.
But for everything else...
God has given us the gift of choice.

My father gave me the tools to fight the battles ahead.
Every hand I extend in kindness is his hand.
And every blow that I strike in justice is his fist.

So long as the lessons he taught stay with me.
And so long as he lives in my heart.
Then my father is never truly dead.
