Original Memory Interview Question

What made your early childhood normal? What made your life special and different?


His Response:

I was raised to believe in the family and the church as a compass for life and it was this belief that helped me through my growing years. All the people in my life were the 'normal' acceptable people you see every day in the schools and in family life in general.

Original Memory Interview Question

How did your parents meet? What was their life like when you were first born? Do you remember certain things about them at a very early age?


His Response:

I have been given different versions of the meeting of my parents but I do know that my Mother was a widow at the time with a small family of at least 4 children. They married in New Brunswick where they met and moved to Ontario just before my brother was born in 1950.

From (Early Life)
Original Memory Interview Question

What parts of the world and where did you live when you were a child? Was it the ghetto? Or was it luxurious and pampered? Look back on it and ask yourself how that influenced your life today.


His Response:

Well because I lived in Canada I would like to say I did not have to worry about Ghettos but then...you can believe that if you want to. Canada has had its share of 'other side of the track' citizens and my own life was influenced some how by the people that perpetrated the exclusion of others in our little 'cliques' because of their status either financially or ethnically. I was always going against their wishes and associating with those 'undesirables' whenever I could; whether they be from a subsidized housing project commonly known as 'the projects' or just the wrong place in town. Unlike America we had the integration debacle well handled (or so we thought) within our public school system at an early stage of our countries history. So yes! I was influenced by that.

From (Early Life)
Original Memory Interview Question

Did you look like anyone else in your family? What are some unique genetic traits that run in your family?


His Response:

I have never looked all that much like most of the rest of my family for several reasons one being that I have many Half-Siblings (same Mother different Father) and because I take much of my looks from the Matriarchal side of my family. I look almost identical to what my Grandfather looked like at my age according to my mother and her sisters. I do also have some of my father's looks but they are less noticeable then the obvious resemblance that I have to my Grandfather.

Original Memory Interview Question

How do you think your life growing up was different than what goes on today in a child's life?


His Response:

Children today are 'spoiled brats' direct quote from my Mother.

Well I would say this much, there are some kids who have been given everything and had to earn nothing and that is why they do not like it when they find out to make a living as an Adult they have to actually work. As a child I was given a small allowance from my Dad but as I got older I had to do chores or I didn't get the allowance at all. As I got older I started working part time after school to make extra money to help out the family as my father had lost his job and we were not poor but we were struggling to keep the bills paid monthly. Every time I was given my allowance I was told I had to give back some to my favorite charity and some to the church poor box ans some I had to save then the rest I could spend. Kids today do not get that same sense of responsibility as we did because they are given too many options for everything it is a 'Multiple Choice' life for them we were given less choices.
