    this my desire to care the old people,, I use to be Entertainer,,performing in hotel,, but I feel something missing on me,, until I became a caregiver to my friends dad and their I know what I really want into my life,, caring old people doesn't matter what race it is,,I just want to care and love them as my own blood,,, I hope and pray one day I have a place for old people in my country
