In this essay the author tells of his personal experience leaving his native country of Cyprus and immigrating to the United States. This took place when the author was a teenager. First, the author tells about the impact of his parents' divorce on his life. Next, he describes saying goodbye to his relatives in Cyprus. An especially poignant moment in this essay was the author's account of saying goodbye to his father and grandparents. The writer ends by saying he's not thought about these memories for a long time, and as readers we can only assume it's because of the pain they must cause.

From the Paper:

"My parents got divorced when I was four years old. Since this is between you and me I guess I can tell you why and how much in affected me. My parents got divorced because my father cheated on my mom on several occasions. I still remember the huge and final argument they had. An argument that a four year old could feel the hatred and anger flow in the air like oxygen it's self. I think I played my part as the peace maker fairly well, even though I failed, by screaming to them to stop fighting. But even in that young age I knew what the entire fight was over. That has made me hate my dad, to a certain extent, and hate the idea of cheating on a girl. I'll admit that I've had my share of girls but I made sure that I will always treat them the way they should be treated and to never hurt them physically or mentally in any way whatsoever."
