Article 008... Smile...
A smile can mean everything or nothing at all.
A smile can be the beginning of something great and in rare occasions the end of something beautiful.
A smile can tell a persons whole life story or it can be the first page of new life. A smile can be fake or real. It can be contagious. It can be just what you needed when all else failed. It can be the beginning of love and way to end hate. It can lead into a hilarious joke or end one. A smile is... you.

I was born in Panama. I grew up with my grandmother. I finished school and I was working in the military. I was working with Noriega then. I had a good position in an operations office. That building was the first that got hit when the US bombed, but I was in New York. Everything is luck in life. I only went to New York for three weeks vacation because I wanted to know my father, I wanted to know that part of myself. When I met my father it was not how I expected, it was not a welcome. It’s not easy to talk about because there is sadness. His side of the family has very clear, light skin. When they saw me they say, ‘Oh we thought you were clear like us.’ I don’t like to talk about it. I didn’t grow up with racism like they have in the US. I didn’t expect that. They were very cold. Being rejected by your dad—he told me to go back. I stayed to prove to my dad that I would be somebody. I put in a big effort and in one year I was a store manager, and then from there my career has been a success, I can’t complain about it. I have four boys—my first one already graduated, another is about to graduate, my oldest son wants to join the LAPD and the last one is at university on a full scholarship. I cannot complain. I still believe the education I got back home was very good, but in America you have more opportunities, you can move up faster. It would take me two or three years in Panama to get my own car; I did it in six months in New York. I own my house and it’s almost paid off even though I’m working for the district right now. I have my own business too, a cleaning company. The opportunities are better here—I went to community college and took computer science and technology classes, that was really helpful for me. I already had a good education but America gave me the opportunity to use it.
