Justin Timberlake is taking this Father's Day to reflect on the lessons he wants to teach and bestow on his son Silas.
The singer recently wrote, "Boys grow up to be fathers. I think about that a lot these days. We try to teach our son to love and respect everyone—we teach him that all people are created equal, and that no one should be treated differently because of the color of their skin."
He shared that along with wife Jessica Biel, the two parents "teach him this because one day, he will go on to pass it on to his kids."
"It's a cycle," Timberlake explains. "And right now, as we all work to undo generations of discrimination that have plagued our system and our communities across this country... I'm reminded today that the first lessons start at home."
The 39-year-old added he's grateful that his parents taught him those lessons. "And for listening to me when I had something to say that they hadn't learned," he continued. "I pray for that humility with my own son. I'm grateful for my wife, who made me a father, and is my favorite person/partner/teacher/friend in all of it. I'm grateful for my son, who is always ALWAYS teaching me right back."
Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there," he concluded. "While we owe our sons and daughters these lessons in the places where the doors close at night, I hope you are as motivated as I am to make them THE TRUTH in the places that same door opens every morning and we send them out to discover. There's more to do. And we are built for it. After all, we are the Dads. Sending my love to you and yours."
