Inspiring Family

Cara Gaskins - Wednesday, December 30, 2015

Tuesday, December 29th was a first. Three brothers graduated from the same New York City police academy class at the same time. Stephen, Alec, and John Favale followed in their father’s footsteps to become New York City police officers.

It was a proud moment for the Favale family, and for the city, as three fine young men committed themselves to public service and to keeping New York safe.

We can only imagine how the three sons’ parents, Anthony and Stephanie Favale, felt—the pride, the joy, and the apprehension. All three sons will be on duty Thursday night guarding the New Year’s celebration where they expect over a million attendees to watch the big ball drop.

Stephanie Favale affirmed her sons in one particular way that struck me. She said we raised these boys to make moral decisions. "Every day they will face important decisions, and I’m confident they will make the right ones."

Parents play the biggest role in building a strong core in their children. Even though her three sons are grown and responsible adults, she continues to convey her expectations. What an incredibly powerful legacy!

Happy New Year to you and here’s to encouraging the development of a strong core in our children and in others for whom we have influence!
