ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - It's no secret dads are missing in some St. Louis neighborhoods. It's a big problem.

My Dad has always been there for me and while I'm not perfect, I turned out okay. My Father's Day wish this year is that young men realize how important they are. I hope they realize how much influence they can have.

I know Father's Day is not one of the biggest holidays around but maybe it should be.

I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
