Growing Up Poor, He Resented His Father for Years. Until He Realized Just How Rich He Was.

Some of us don’t grow up with a lot. It’s not a bad thing: simple home, simple family, lower expenses, food are all blessings in abundance. But as kids, we don’t think or realize this as well – it’s hard to see others, even friends, with more material wealth and comfort. For this Singaporean filmmaker, it’s as true as anywhere else. His father worked hard, and he didn’t grow up wealthy – but it took his father’s passing and a visit to a children’s hospital to show him just how rich he truly was. Thankfully, this short film offers us the same thing without as much heartache. Try a little grace today by clicking play on the clip below.
