My American Relative
Today I will tell you about my American relative, he is my parents’ uncle ( my parents are cousins ) he lives in America since 1964 , he is a professor civil engineer .he cares a lot about his family in Iraq ,he calls his brothers every Sunday ,he never missed a call if he could . The life in America did not make him forget his family, and as life in Iraq was filled with troubles, I think his care about his family had a great effect on his health, life and his joy with his family.
Once I read an article about an interview with him , he said that he feel half his body fight the other half , because he is half American and half Iraqi, he mentioned how he worried a lot about us during the war when there was no phone connections, and how he suffered and his blood pressure got high ,
He kept trying and trying for long hours to hear any thing to assure him .When I read that, I was very amazed, he is so close to his family in spite of the great distance between him and the family , I think the relatives here don’t care about each other in the way he dose, because they are busy with their life troubles. We wish that we will get a peaceful life to make it possible to put together all family, we really hope to meet our cousins and their children .this is a dream we wish one day would become true .
