My dad had to leave to India that very night for the funeral.
Can I come too?
Sorry Amira but I can't take you with me.
I know it's hard but we will get through this.
My Dad tried to explain to me why I couldn't come but I was to upset to listen.
Bye honey have a safe trip.
Bye you guys
Wait I don't understand why though.
I finally asked my mom that night after my dad left why I wasn't able to go along.
But that's not fair.
The reason for you not being able to go was because your school didn't allow as to take a leave for this funeral.
Since there is only 1 week left of school and you have already started your E.O.G's you can't leave. If you did than you would have to repeat the 5th grade again.
I was very upset the next day because of the board of education. Since the rules that were made and enforced by the government it restricted me from seeing my grandfather.
Why me? I hate this school.
I had to take the E.O.G's for the next couple days. I wasn't able to focus much on them and was sad for most of that week.
It was good.
Hey you guys how did the exam go for you?
It went okay I guess.
After many years now that I reflect back to my younger years I learned everything does happen for a good reason. I mean I have learned a lot from this experience and I also know how to overcome harsh realities. In a good way this impact made me understand the value of my family.
Dada I will always love you unconditionally where ever you are.
