    Family is my greatest achievement


    I'm Jon the Dad I'm Mohawk  my wife the Mom is Aboriginal kids 12,6,4,2,11 months old & one on the way in October yes I'm a busy man @ work & home & I love it My family is my greatest achievement my two oldest attend connections academy online there are a lot or pictures hear I have even put one up of the who doesn't know were at the dentist. I live in San Jose Ca I have been in situation of racist people every ware mostly in Texas allot of people thought I was white because they never thought to ask about ethnicity, I was always asked what is your nationality & my responds would be American then I later found out people were really confused about the two .My wife's situation was different in the fact that because she is dark black people would be racist & think she was black. One day I saw it for my own eye's we went out to eat in Berkeley ca yes  Berkeley ca & this black man walked up to my wife & sad what is wrong with you sisters taking the white man My wife said it' best I want a smart handsome man that does not fear change & is willing to work for his life & not take anything from people that have worked there whole life to get it  & that has  nothing to do with color & she told him if that was him she would leave the date with me and go with him so I waited to hear his answer He called her a bitch & she said there is not a dog behind me now please go Sir and be a better man .That was me & my wife's first date & I fell in love with this beautiful smart proud woman that speaks her mind & even when she yell's @ me for not cleaning the children the way she likes I love to listen My wish to all men is to remember why you fell in love is it words grace demure all of it or just because she is the best for me it's all of it because without her is my greatest achievement would not be .So men open your heart get hurt and be patient
