Our family lives fairly close to the heart of the town, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. Caring with affection would most probably suit my family. Like other families, my parent looked after their children, and me as a big brother would carry the responsibility to look after my siblings too. My father is a very wise man, his words always inspire one to think and think again, before deciding on anything. Next, another important member of my family is my mother, who is very busy day and night in her office as a draftswoman.
The Relay was a very special part of my family's life because of what it meant to cancer survivors like my grandma. One thing’s for sure, no matter what she had planned that night you could always count on Mawmaw Maggie being there and walking the Survivor's Lap for the cause. From what I remember she would walk most of the night only stopping for an occasional drink and snack. My family’s unfailing participation in this event taught me to never be selfish and to always do things to help others even when I feel like I’m having my own
She taught me to respect other people and that while everyone has their opinion; it is in no way my right to take that away from them, whether it is wrong or right. Her actions spoke louder than words, but her words also still spoke loud, she always saw the best in people no matter how rude they could be to her she would still be friendly and actually be concerned about them. I spent every weekend with her at her home in Lakewood where she taught me everything I needed to know about life, things I’m just now realizing but are very important values I have been living by my entire live consciously or sub-consciously. Living through a war is something she very rarely talked about but I listened when she did. She talked about the city going completely dark at 6pm so the Nazi’s couldn’t see where they were dropping the bombs, how they would have to close the shutters every night and stay in their basement till the next morning and not knowing whether or not she would make it throughout the night.
Her father had a nice job, which sometimes kept him away, but he always brought gifts for his family, to show his care for them. Meanwhile her mother was the hostess who entertained anyone who knocked on her door, and provided everyone with gifts. The life before the war comfortable, yet filled with embarrassments at times from the cultural ways of her ancestry, even though they weren't strict followers. She describes her life as always being surrounded by people, friends of parents, who visited constantly, which vexed her because her mother could hardly find time to herself and with her daughters. The deep generosity of her family shows the good morals that she grew up with, as her mother taught her and her sister that "Indifference is the worst fault of all" .
“He is immortal, not because he is alone among creatures has an exhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance.” (Faulkner) Bragg shows many instances of compassion both in his writing and when he talks of his mother. Bragg’s mother was a very compassionate person, always putting others before her and making sure her family has enough clothing and food to live happily. Bragg felt that he had to pay his mother back for everything she sacrificed for him when he was little. “Every winter, I bought her a big, warm, fuzzy bathrobe, the men’s size from Sears, because she was so tall. I bought her a hot-water heater, and another one when it wore out…They were tiny things, inconsequential things.
It’s not like my family is filled with a whole bunch of illiterate people. Trust me my family is filled with very smart people. The sad part is they weren’t given the chances to complete high school. For example my mother had an untimely pregnancy which limited her ability to attend school regularly which eventually led to her having to drop out. These stories continue throughout my family and the list goes on.
