No one is complete without a family. For me a strong foundation for any individual comes from being with a supportive family. And Family is where we all belong to. I know that today days, it may be really hard for the whole family to go out together. In the past I can thank God for being part of a blessed family is one among the greatest gifts that we get in life. Now I have no clue where my family is? Something I can never forget since I’m living in this country for like 2 years. It was in 2011 when I left my country to live here with my parent. I affronted some bad event on my life, something I never expect that can happen to me. For one example is very clear to explain the life I had before those last 2 years.

Every day I tend to have a perfect life similarly to the one I had in the past, and it one of most difficult someone can presume to have on this country. Even though someone have money to care itself, but it have something else that better than money. In level familial, it easy for white people to have a perfect family because this is their country. For us is very difficult to have a strong family base because everyone become dependent. In my case I learn to live by myself since 2 years, everyone is busy on his own way. We don’t collaborate and corporate in all each other; likewise, we don’t have a family.
