Inspiration: My father was a farmer’s son who graduated from two universities (Economics and Engineering). He is a survivor of Communist regimes and Communist prisons , who became a political refugee in The United States of America and who spoke out for the freedom of those who were still being persecuted. A loving son, who became a loving husband and parent.
A man who had dealt with the ordeals and the vicissitudes of life through the prism of gratitude, focusing on the candle breaking the darkness, rather than the other way around. He was and will always be to me the personification of the consciousness and of the realization that most people are in perpetual longing to have something that they already are: Love.
