I started thinking about what I believe after I left my family circle and moved to seattle. My great grandparents left India as poor indentured servants to work the sugar cane plantaions in guyana in south america for
2 generations. I was one of the first in my family to be born in the United states. My great grandparents, grand parents, and parents all left the soil were they were born so that thier children could live a better life. Today I have everything that I need and I dont want for anything. I believe that I honor their sacrifices in the way that I live my life.
That is why I try to live good and giving life, so that I can attempt to give back what was given to me.
