Politics and family: I’ll say this once

There is nothing I wouldn’t do for my family. Politically, professionally or otherwise. I’ve seen the tweets, never in my life did I consider that being, “Famous,” would entail this sort of scrutiny. While I could share countless stories…that’s not who I am, and never will be. If you are reading this for political reasons, go ahead, browse the gamut. The only thing you’ll find is that I disappointed my kids last month; due to circumstances beyond my control, I couldn’t visit them in Hong Kong.

Do you want to know how many tears I shed? How much my heart broke when I had to tell my children it would be July when I hopefully visit? There is nothing in life to contend with the heartache of disappointing your children. Politics are what they are; I miss my kids. We skype, but it’s not the same. Sure, it’s better than when I grew up with a serious call latency with Indonesia and the US.

Point blank, how would you feel if you disappointed your children?

This is what drives me, what motivates, what makes me question, “How can I do better?” I get that every parent believes their children are the best, are perfect, etc. My jokers are not perfect, but they are a perfect blend of their heritage. These two I have as inspiration, as if I needed more. These boys are the future, for they will outlast my time in this life.

I wish that the politics would leave all of us out of it; however, your grandfather is a unique man. So, too, is your mother a unique woman. Eventually, I’ll also be a, “Unique father,” for a variety of reasons.

Have fun, stay safe and I’ll talk to you both tomorrow.
