Hi Guys... This is David Waknine, I know I haven't been putting many posts up here... I get crap from my producers all the time. Here I am... And I have something to share.
March 26th, 2014... Last year at this date, my brother got into an operating room in Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic and never made it out... On February 26th, a month before my brother past, on his birthday, I had called him to wish him Happy Birthday. We hadn't spoke in 3 years. He was really happy to hear my voice and wanted us to see each other. It felt good to reconcile with my brother after 3 years, but it felt horrible seeing him last in a coma. To lose him without any words of love to each other, face to face, is something that I will have to live with the rest of my life.
Today, March 26, 2015, same date, my father is getting operated in Madrid, Spain. Both exactly one year apart, both in foreign lands. My father and I never really had much of a relationship. When I called this morning to speak to him, I could feel how weak he is... No words were really exchanged, like usual, than we hung up. I kept walking around my home feeling really empty... Why can't I say I love you this man? Why? Is it because he never did to me? So what... That's not me... But yet, I found it really hard to call him back. But, I finally did... It felt awkward, but I said it... "I love you dad, be strong, I love you a lot". And he replied very weakly, I think maybe he was even crying... "Thank you... Thank you." That was my father, saying I love you too. It was good enough for me.
I hope that I see him again!
The journey that I have been going on in ONE MORE ROUND has helped me face any of my demons... And because of that I was at least able to call my brother and my father. I will always be grateful to this journey! ONE MORE ROUND will hopefully come to an end in September 2015!!!
Thank you to all of you for being part of this with me!!!
