It was really the saddest day of my life.
I started my day waking up late from my bed.
Every single day, when I wake up, I sometimes stop to think about how lucky I am to get to wake up and see my family every single day. I’ve learned there are many kids, my age, younger, and much older, that have to wake up knowing they don’t have a family that cares about them, or maybe they don’t even have a family at all. Thinking back to all the problems and tough times I’ve had in my life, I realize it was my family and their love that helped me get through them.
It was the day when my brother, Tara Singh, died.
Several months ago, my great-aunt passed away. She was my grandma’s sister and best friend, the person she told everything to. I remember my grandma crying frequently, along with my mom and other family members. I didn’t know what to do; it was so hard seeing them so sad. The funeral came only days after, and I still remember hugging my grandma while she was sobbing. I remember even crying a little myself. It wasn’t necessarily because of the death of my great-aunt, but because I realized how much I loved my grandma, and how much I wanted to help her. Our love was what kept everything in line, and it helped my grandma to become stronger and move on.
Sad Short Stories That WILL! Make You Cry - Forgotten Essay
Through the pieces of his life that remained after he moved on and as I grew to cope with his illness and death, I have come to realize the value of dedication and hard work, and how it is through our actions and words that we make this world a better place. Sometimes people forget the value of a warm smile, a hug to those in need, or even the value of dedicated work. It’s not about who has the nicest things or the most money, but who leads their life with a warm heart. As I remain here today driving my truck with pride with harmonica in suite, I’ll never forget the influence of my grandfather and his life, nor how even after his death, he changed my life. Though I miss him greatly I am proud to remember that every time I turn the key in the ignition, I know he rides along with me in heart, reminding me of life’s smallest and greatest blessings.
