This story reflects my deep concern about youth and the impact of their parents' mistakes on their lives. When I was a student, someone told my father that I had an affair with a girl, whose hand – I swear - I never touched. At lunch, he told me a funny story of a wolf who wanted his father to go with him to ask the dog´s daughter for marriage. The wolf told his son to go alone and say he is the wolf´s son to convince the dog. 'What happened?' I asked my father naively. 'The dogs chased him till he reached the forest' he answered smiling. Only then did I know what he meant.
My father was a traditional baker. He used to give bread and shelter to tramps in his modest bakery. Some people think that when one’s father is poor one is doomed. I am proud of my father, who worked hard to maintain a family and left me sane and safe. I cannot but thank both my parents for the effort, the time and the money they spent on me. I am a father of two now and I do know what it means. No one would opt for poverty, not in this selfish world. Good education is the best fortune on earth to bequeath to our children. When we think money is everything, then we lose everything. Money is, indeed, the dirtiest thing on earth if not used properly. The unfair banking system is the main cause of humans’ misfortune. Bread for all is the least of human rights. Sadly, it is far from being a reality in today’s world.
