Of all the people I have encountered in my life, the person I admire the most is my father the reason I admire him that much is for the simple fact of him being not just my father, my dad. As a wise man once said "Anyone can be a father, but it takes a real man to be a dad." I belive not every father can be a dad it takes courage, strength, responsability, patience, acceptance, love, justice, reliability and much more and my dad has shown this virtues in everyday life experiences, in spite of the situation we are in, he never looses himself.
Once I remember I was sick so I had to stay home in bed. Since my dad had a lot of work to do he left early, and told me he would be back late. When he got to the office he called me and asked me how I was doing, i answered I wasn't doing so good, and 15 mn later he was back home because he was worried about me. I saw him working at the same time that he was taking care of me. Even though I was only 10 years old, that is when i realized how much time and work he gives up for me.
My dad grew in a close family surrounded by love. He was a person full of questions, but as he grew older, he became wiser in many ways, and it was only a matter of time for him to get the the answer to all these questions. One good lesson my dad has taught me was that you most likely won't have the answer to everything, but that is what life is for, to learn from your mistakes and find those answer your are looking for. From him I also learned that to able for people to hear you, you need to speak. You have to fight for what you believe in, and never back down. He is an extremly determined man, he will accomplish anything he puts his mind to. I've always admired his sense of humor, how he makes everybody laugh and feel better. And I really hope someday I can give people such good advice as the one my father gives to me when I encounter a problem, and to be able to handle it with the same strength and grace as he does.
