It made me think of the hardship I have faced over the years on this rock in western Pacific hemisphere, the island we know as home. I stopped to think about it, the question that is...Why is it that I am still here? Why haven't I considered the move earlier on. Well, it's simple, as I smiled back at him and said, this is where I live, with the people I love, the island I adore, and eventually the place where I will be laid to rest... He looked back at me and nodded his head and said, "I admire that, you express love for your country and are doing everything necessary to support it's growth economically".
Sure, there are opportunities, and why not look at greener pastures for oneself, but in the end, everyone comes home. Now I am blessed with a wife and eight loving children that make any bad day feel great. This is my home, this is my life I chose for myself, these are my reasons for staying.
