Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong wrote this about his father, who died of cancer on September 1st, 1982. At his father’s funeral, Billie cried, ran home and locked himself in his room. When his mother got home and knocked on the door to Billie’s room, Billie simply said, “Wake me up when September ends.”
" What does a man do? A man provides for his family. When you have children, you always have family. They will always be your priority, your responsibility. A man provides, and he does it even when he’s not appreciated… or respected… or even loved. He simply bears up, and he does it… because he’s a man."
