Sweetest Dad Contest
Hello, my name is Denzel Williams and I have the best, sweetest father in the world. Why? Because my dad has worked hard: at one point he worked three jobs to provide for my three brothers, sister and I. My dad stayed active in our lives by coming to events that we would be involved in. He would fall asleep at the movies and would have to sleep while my mom drove us to events and then dropped dad off at work after the event. I remember my dad's eyes looking tired from lack of sleep but dad never complained because he loved us and said that we are the force that drives him to press on everyday.
When dad had to go from one job to another we would have devotion and prayer time in the car because it keeps us close and loving one another, my dad would say. In 1994, our home cought on fire and my dad got my brothers and sister out but had to go back into the burning house that was engulfed and saved me, but in the process my dad was seriously injured and had to be hospialized. In 2006, at the age of 40, my dad decided to attend collage at Latourneau universiey and in 2010 he graduated with honors with a 3.74 GPA. He did this in hopes of getting a better job and to encourage us (my brothers and sister and I) to never give up on improving yourself and that we can obtain anything that we work hard for. My dad has worked as a correctional officer for over 25 years and he was just told this month that his prison unit (the central unit in Sugarland, Texas) will be closing this year in december due to the state budget crises and due to the prison being the oldest in the houston area. So, my dad is feeling down and sad because the prison officals still have not told him if he will have a chance to transfer or if he will be without a job. My dad had only 4 years to go and he could retire. In conclusion, My dad Mr. Charles G. Williams Sr., is the sweetest dad in the whole wide would and Universe for that matter and he could use some cheering up by winning this contest that he truly deserves.
