My grandfathers’ childhood was difficult, because it was part of this depression. When he was a kid his food was rationed, his family was only allowed so much of certain items sugar, meat, butter, and other certain things. When he was twelve years old, he got a job at a deli slicing meat, he did this to help his family out, this demonstrates that even at a young age he was willing to do whatever it took to help out what with he called “the cause”, or his family. His parents were very hard workers, his father was an air brake mechanic, at the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad, he would put in long hard hours, to support his family. His mother was forced to work during World War II, she worked at a mill doing riveting work, later she worked at Bell Telephone.
I knew my father meant well by his teaching but I wanted to live and be a kid... ... middle of paper ... ... with my uncle doing construction. I would work six days a week while maintaining my grades in school. I was not able to do the things a teen in high school were able to do.

This book ran in Bentley’s Miscellany of which he was the editor of. Though writing wasn’t his full occupation he always kept a full time job as he was scared of being poverty stricken like his family when he was younger. Charles had a long writing career with a great style of writing. It enthused many people and kept them interested.
He gave me advice everyday when I would just tell him all my problems. I was happy I was graduating, and I was happy my son was growing strong and healthy, but I did not care about anything else. He taught me that life is always going to give us hard times and never to give up. He became a father to my son like if my son is his biological son. He teaches my son from wrong to right and especially teaches him to listen, and respect me no matter what.

Growing up there was never a day I was not with my father. My father had always taught me many values things in life as did my family. Though I never thought about it in the moment it happened. As I get older and look back I noticed growing up with a close relationship to my father I have grown and matured into the young adult I am today. One of my favorite memories with my father was when my brother and I didn’t have school and dad didn’t work, so he decided to take us to the mountains.
When thinking about servant speakers in my life, I immediately thought of my Dad. My dad is a servant for many different reasons. He is a great role model for me. He is an exhibits patience, peacefulness, and kindness. He also speaks up to defend people, and is excellent when it comes to multi-cultural speaking.
