I interviewed him I told him why did you come to the United States and he told me he came to work and to build a family and home. Its so sad how he came from nothing to something. I told him where are your parents from and he told me they are from Mexico and are still living in Mexico. Then I asked him where are you from he said I'm from Mexico. I even asked him what what did you bring with you from your country and he just took out of his a photograph of his family in front of his home he says I take it around with me for good luck. I told him any family members came with you he said no but one of his brothers was already here I know that because his brother used to be my co worker. I told him do you have a home or a job he said I have a home with my brother and he used to work for my grandfather. Now he still works in the best deli in NYC with me I love working with him he tells me about the past how everything was hard for him and I look up to him.
