Touching Video: AmMetLife "What's your dream for your child?"

Recently I was introduced to this very touching video on Youtube. Watching it the first time brought tears to my eyes, literally. It is part of AmMetLife "What's your dream for your child?" campaign, and I must say, a huge part of the video I could relate to it personally. Okay, before we proceed, watch it first! I've embedded it below after the introduction image.

Have you watched it yet? Well, in a nutshell, the video shows this father and his daughter walking through the park, where he starts reading a letter written to him from her. It starts off being very loving, as the daughter relates how he loves her so much, spend time with her, and always makes her happy. Everything's fine and dandy here, until midway through the video...

My father lies... , the piece of paper reads. My father lies about having a job.. my father lies about not being tired.. my father lies about having money. Initially it hit home pretty hard, as the visuals shows the dad going through his daily life working really hard at menial and hard labour jobs, while trying to secure a good job for the future of his daughter.

Why does it make me cry? Well for starters, it's so darn touching! I mean, this is exactly what every loving father would have done for their children. Slogging hard, day in, and day out to provide for the daughter, without a thought for himself. 

What's your dream for your child? For me, my #DreamForMyChild would be to provide for my sons, and family, to ensure they get what they need and live a better life than mine. My dream would be to see both my sons be successful in life, growing up healthy and happy. No matter how hard I will have to work out there, to bring in the $$ to support their needs to grow up, I will do it as there's no better happiness than to see your own flesh and blood smile back at you.
