    Roots and Importance

    When I started looking back on my roots I never knew how important our roots may be?

    Sitting here watching Roots with Erin Burnett? She is from the very place my daughter Skye and I are from? My name is Arran another one of the highland Isles. Skye and myself find pride in being named after a couple places that will forever give birth to more Scots.

    Skye was her daddies savior. Yes that little girl was born exactly 9 months after my brothers suicide. So I look very highly upon that little girl. We do our best in raising her. My wife makes 12 dollars an hour and I am disabled. Yes we live below poverty but we live happily most of the time.

    I have only one wish for my daughter. It would be that one day she can step on the land her daddy named her after. She deserves it and she isnt getting the great start monetarily? But the love for her cannot be surpassed. So if you ever see this Skye? Daddy wants you to go home and enjoy your trip.
