Moving to a Better Life I have had a fortunate life I have never had to experience the death of an immediate family member or any violence to deal with Whenever someone asks me What event has changed your life I reply The only event that I can truly say has changed my life is when my family moved to Sioux City Iowa In 1992 when I was eight-years-old my family lived in Des Moines Iowa I was a lonely little boy not having any friends to play with I spent most of my time playing Nintendo and taking my short-legged brown dog for walks My dad sometimes found time in his busy schedule to take me to Sailorville Lake about twenty minutes from our house where we would spend hours fishing My dads work had transferred him from Sioux City to Des Moines to manage a mens retail store Although we had only been living in Des Moines for a couple of years it felt like eternity for a boy of eight I hated Des Moines with its noisy streets and crowded back yards One night in late September while we were eating dinner my dad announced to my sister and I Kids I know you two just got settled in to school but we are not going to be staying here much longer I have been transferred back to Sioux City After about choking on my hot dog I turned to my dad Alright I screamed You are the best dad in the whole wide world I could not believe it we were moving back to all of my friends and to the place I loved Are we leaving tomorrow I asked My dad turned to me and said No I must leave tomorrow to find us a place to live You and your sister are going to stay here and take care of mommy
