´╗┐Emotional Journey-Liam Daisley Have you ever wanted to do something so bad, you can?t wait and it actually seems the days and hours are getting longer as you get close? I hadn?t seen my father for three years and I wanted to see him so bad, I also wanted to move the United States of America which had been my dream since I was a little child. My dad had left for the United States when his business failed and he had to find a job which was better than his business and after a few years he decided to move his family as well. I was excited and couldn?t wait until the last week I had to spend in Greenock but then I realized what I was about to live behind, most of my relatives and friends, my home, it was going to very hard for me to leave the place I called home for fifteen years. ...read more.


We faced the direction we were coming from, watching everything fade away one by one from our site.

After the checking out was done we had to find our way home, my dad, so we proceeded to the waiting area. As we walked down the hall, I was the first to see my dad for the first time in three years and at this point, I couldn?t think of anything else other than run and get to him before he disappeared for another three years. As I got closer, for the first time in my life I saw my dad shed tears. These tears were contagious as we all shed them.
