Firstly, in my family I have two brothers, two sisters and a baby nephew. We wanted to dedicate something to my late father, so we named my nephew after my father. The death of my father has made my family even closer then before. “Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them”. I’ve chosen this quote because even though my father passed he’s still not dead to me, but one thing I know is that I will never forget my father. Even though my father wasn’t a strong role in my life his death still had an impact on me .
Secondly, my father and mother both come from the same part of Africa which is called South Sudan. On July 9th, 2011 South Sudan became an independent country. Before that north and south Sudan where one just one country. But due to many years of war my family decided to flee to Canada for a safe life. During that war they lost many family members. That is why you must value your family because you can lose them easily. The various stories of the war have taught me also to be very appreciative of what I have in my life and who I have in my life
