    A Father's Day Wish


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     jaxanddoug wrote a heartfelt poem for his 8-year-old daughter, Isabella, as a way of sharing his Father’s Day wishes for her. 'I think the six-month anniversary of Sandy Hook and the tragic death of the children at the school in Oklahoma after the tornado just a few weeks ago made me hold my daughter a little tighter,' he said. 'It is hard to pin point exactly what drove me to write this, but it was late at night and when I read what I typed in the morning, it just felt honest and heartfelt.'
