Stow Away

49 years ago there was a man decided to leave their province to find a greener pasture and better life in the future.  He was 15 years old when he decided to go to the city far from their province.  Since he has no money because he is still young, he decided to stow away.  He hides inside the bus and ship until he reaches to the city he wanted to start his life.  So aggressive to go to the city and find his future.   Scared yes, but his determination and willingness to have a better life he overcomes it all.  He got a job in the factory and secretly practicing how to drive then apply for a new job as driver.  Indeed when you want changes in life and be a successful one in the field you want to be, you can do it and achieved it sooner.

This is what had happened to this man.  He got married, have his own family and a decent job.  He is a responsible father and a good husband to his wife.  Sad thing is that his wife passed away early.  He raised his kids alone and give them a decent life.   His children have grown, successful and married.  And this man happens to be my father and I am one of his proud daughters.  Though we argue a lot, my respect and love for him will always be there.
