Seek freedom, Find future

Chatted with taxi driver en route back from Epcot center. Turns out he's 64yo, looking forward to retirement. Lived 32 years in US, was born in Haiti. Used to be a truck driver. Has 2 sons & 3 daughters, of which 2 serve in the military. Only 1 son lives with him, the others are all over America.

What impressed me was when he blurted, I got saved since 1971. Then I told me about my Ah Kong, 92yo, saved for 20years now?

Cultural differences aside, both stories are similar. Came from foreign land, seeking a better life. Went through hardship to bring up his children.

Gotta take my hat off to them!
