When I was a kid Daniel your great grandfather gave me a Bible. Just a small one with black leather on its side. It was my first time sunday school at the church. He had one favorite verse that he always repeated, Matthew chapter 7 verse 7 “ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be open for you.” Since that moment, that verse is my companion.
Don’t get wrong, I am not that religius men who hold the bible every where I go. Time by time I open it just because I am in trouble. When your grandmother get angry to me, I sit in my room open that Bible and read. After that, like any other boy I put it back on my shell and open it only when I was in trouble, again. Or when my friends punch me with no reason, I never fight back. I ask the Bible, what should I do? Maybe you have the answer.

Ten years later, which is recently days I had my next flood lessons. Two times precisely. First was on Sunday 16 last week and second was yesterday. I write this while I sit on the top of my half wet books and German course practical book. My other stuff like old documents such as papers that is not survive will have to remove as soon as possible.
