I interviewed my great grandfather Mr. Simon ____________ (Please add your surname here).
My great grandfather was born in the late 80s. His father was a farmer and they lived a very happy life together for a couple of years, where he would excitedly look forward to going out in the fields. He was a child back in the days of the Industrial revolution and reminisced about that time when his father was one of the few people who migrated from being a farmer to becoming one of the people who worked in the industry. He spoke about it with a mix of emotions in his eyes. You could see that he was trying hard to fight back tears as he told us all a story which truly moved us.
Suffice to say that during that period when change was eminent. 分析人物形象代写
Many people had to make immense sacrifices in order to survive, and what is even more sad to hear was the story of how my great grandfather had to leave behind his best friend because his family had to move away. Simone he called him, with a smile, and said that because both of their names were similar, they would often joke about what would happen if they exchanged their lives. But he saw the way that his friend grieved when he left, and his heart broke according to him.
“I still remember the day we left. Simone was standing by the corner of our house, crying loudly and sniffing, but then he made a gesture, he raised his right hand and put his index finger up. That was our sign and hope to each other. It meant that no matter where we may be, our hearts and thoughts will always be with each other. After that, I never saw him again.”
“But I must say that life has been kind to me. I got a beautiful family and a beautiful wife, who allowed me to feel strong and move forward. Since we came from a family of farmers, my father was adamant in wanting me to study and make something of myself. The proudest moment of my life was when I finished my college degree and could see tears of happiness in my Father’s eyes. That was the moment when I knew that I had done him proud.”
He further went on to mention that after graduation, he was given the chance of being a manger in a factory, which allowed him to provide well for his family and give some rest to his old father. He professed that he still regrets that he wasn’t able to do anything for his father, and always felt that no matter how hard he tried, he would never be able to give him all the things he wanted to. And eventually his father passed away, so the feeling of not being able to do anything for him became even stronger, that even till his day, he feels sad about it and regrets it deeply.
Then he smiled and told me a story about his happiest memory. 分析人物形象代写
“When your grandfather was born, I was beyond happy, but when your father was born, I was over joyed. I had lived long enough to see my grandson. And then you were born. I can never explain the feeling in words when I heard the news, and the first time I laid my eyes on you, I couldn’t hold back my tear. You were a little bundle of joy and I was so happy that I was able to live long even to see you being born into this world. That is one of the happiest memories of my life.” At this point, even I had tears in my eyes, and I smiled as he smiled his toothless smile at me, and we both sat there quietly for some time, until my mother brought in some tea with snacks.
Although his demeanor had gone soft, and he found it difficult to breathe. 分析人物形象代写
I could see that talking about his life was something he enjoyed. The twinkle in his eyes, the way his lips curled into a smile, and how he remembered each and everything with exact detail showed just how much he had been bursting to share this with someone. We hardly ever get time to talk to our loved ones, but when we do, we realize that they actually have so many stories to share with us, and so many exciting adventures they have been on.
He ended the discussion with an exciting story from his youth when he took a tram to visit an unknown part of town and discovered a magical shop in which items he had never seen before were being sold. Later on, he found out that an old lady who had no other kin was running that shop, and he helped her get more customers by designing a board for her. He remembered how fun it was to help a complete stranger and see them smile as his idea worked. Later on, he got scolded by his parents for disappearing on them, but he enjoyed that day, discovering new things and new places that day.
In the end 分析人物形象代写
I would just like to say that it is the little things in life that truly matter, and listening to my great grandfather taught me how that is entirely true.
