Pagi tadi aku datang keje cam biasa..since tomorrow public holiday so ramai yang amik cuti arini..aku pun buat laa rutine cam biasa and after that aku bukak email aku..then sumthing caught my eye..E-mail bertajuk “all children must read”..aku pun terdetik hati nak baca email tu..and finally the email is worth reading..jom kita baca!!!
My dad only had one eye. I hated him... He was such an embarrassment. .
He cooked for students & teachers to support the family.
There was this one day during elementary school where my dad came to
Say hello to me.
I was so embarrassed.
How could he do this to me?
I ignored him, threw him a hateful look and ran out.
The next day at school one of my classmates said, "EEEE, your dad only
Has one eye!"
I wanted to bury myself
I also wanted my dad to just disappear..
I confronted him that day and said, " If you're only gonna make me a Laughing stock, why don't you just die?"
My dad did not respond....
I didn't even stop to think for a second about what I had said, because
I was full of anger.
I was oblivious to his feelings.
I wanted out of that house, and have nothing to do with him.
So I studied real hard, got a chance to go abroad to study.
Then, I got married.
I bought a house of my own.
I had kids of my own.
I was happy with my life, my kids and the comforts, Then one day, my father came to visit me.
He hadn't seen me in years and he didn't even meet his
When he stood by the door, my
children laughed at him, and I yelled at
Him for coming over uninvited.
I screamed at him, "How dare you
come to my house and scare my
GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!"
And to this, my father quietly answered, "Oh, I'm so sorry. I may have
Gotten the wrong address,"
And he disappeared out of sight.
One day, a letter regarding a school
reunion came to my house..
So I lied to my wife that I was
going on a business trip.
After the reunion, I went to the
old shack just out of curiosity.
My neighbors said that he died.
I did not shed a single tear.
They handed me a letter
that he had wanted me to have.
"My dearest son,
I think of you all the time. I'm sorry that I came to your house and
Scared your children.
I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion.
But I may not be able to even get out of bed to see you.
I'm sorry that I was a constant embarrassment to you when you were
You see........when you were very little, you got into an accident, and
Lost your eye.
As a father, I couldn't stand watching you
Having to grow up with one eye.
So I gave you mine.
I was so proud of my son who was seeing a whole new world for me, in my
Place, with that eye.
With all my love to you,
