Extra TV personality and former co-host of BET’s 106 and Park AJ Calloway has been on the scene of some of the biggest events in entertainment over the last 15 years. I am glad to have known AJ for over 15 years, and caught up to him during Super Bowl week in New York City to talk sports. But we also talked about other topics as well, and one, in particular, caught my attention.

I asked AJ what fatherhood means to him.  “It’s everything.  There’s nothing more special.  It’s why you’re here.  It’s why you are placed on earth.  And once you become a father it’s up to you and it’s your responsibility to live that and be that, as best as you can.  Calloway closed with some advice to young fathers, and said so sternly while looking into the camera.  “All the young men out there, if you are a father, act like a father, period.”  Couldn’t have set it any better myself.
