Gabriel Martinez, a seventh grader, wrote this thoughtful and moving letter to his unknown father. This story was selected by PRX editors as both a Staff Favorite and a Best of Youth-Made Radio. “Dear Father” was also picked up by Remix, PRX’s 24-hour stream, which prompted this letter as a result of hearing the story at dawn within a Massachusetts Corrections Facility.
