When I started this blog back in January of 2006, young Galadriel Tanqueray Onassis was just 11 years old. She was starting her 2nd semester of middle school.
On Memorial Day Weekend, I proudly watched her walk across the stage in Municipal Auditorium as she graduated High School.
You probably know about GTO. I may have mentioned her on this blog once or twice.
Let me tell you a few things about my daughter.
She's smart. Really, really fucking smart. Smarter than you!
She's tough and resilient. I could tell you stuff. She's had to deal with a lot of shit in the past 18 years. She's still dealing with shit. But she never lets adversity define her. She makes adversity her bitch.
I trust her. She has a good head on her shoulders and she makes good decisions. She makes good friends. She sees the mistakes that other people make and she learns from them.
She has a really BIG heart. She cares about other people. Way more than I do. When she sees people in pain she wants to reach out and help them.
She's a good friend.
She's a rational atheist with no tolerance for superstition, bigotry, prejudice or hatred.
Much to my amazement, I've raised a daughter who is a genuinely good human being.
I'm proud to be her father and I love her more than anyone or anything.
If the only worthwhile thing I accomplish on this planet is fathering GTO, I'll consider myself a very wealthy man.
