I cannot express my thanks to you for making this point. The position I was in was as low as one can be and for all those that helped I want you to know that I have not only been able to take care of my wife and son and daughter (still stuck in the Maldives due to Trumps shutting down of the embassies) but also others in the Maldives. At the time, all resorts closed and our guesthouse had no guests because of the border closings. We had barely 100.00 on us because all reservations had been cancelled. If anyone can imagine what it is like to leave your family in order to take a chance on finding work back home then please let me know how you feel! My family is my world and for the last year we have done video chats twice a day and that has consisted of passing along information and given confidence to my kids that everything will be alright! My son, on Valentines Day, he is 8 years old, said "Dad, I miss you so much and miss you more than God!"...when someone on here calls me out then it hurts badly because I don't think they know what I have gone through for the past year. My family is my world and I am fighting against what Trump did to appease his "base", I am fighting against a Covid world, I am working to simply get my wife a replacement resident visa card and to hope that customs will let them enter the USA. I am VERY thankful to all that helped and in all my years have never seen such an outpouring of support..never! It is never to be forgotten! But I am who I am and I voice my opinion the same and expect feedback when it doesn't match others. For the record. Day one of getting to the USA, March 29th I began a job search. One cannot imagine how few jobs were available. I was not given any stimulus money. Was not eligible for unemployment. What I did was apply around the country for Chief Engineer or Director of Engineering jobs anywhere. I applied for temp jobs for CE support at hotels which I might add were not happening until 2 months ago and now I get calls weekly for assistance. I took on a high rise job with a major company in a location that I would not have ever considered but it has been a financial plus and I give 11 to 12 hours a day to make it real. Without your assistance then I would have been completely broke and no way to support my family. My paycheck allows me to send 500.00 every 2 weeks to my wife which allows her to feed, give clothing and school supplies to our kids but it gets better..we also pay for the utilities of the people she stays with and take care of an elderly woman that lives there and her family members. You see, the Maldives has issues of unemployment because they are tourism dependent and most of the people living in Addu Maldives have family members that work on resort islands and send their paychecks home to pay for their families. Reduced tourism means less employment. We have managed to help out and this would not have happened without all of your support. Get this...all my wife needs is a replacement resident visa card, that USCIS lost, and my family would be on a plane to come home. So for those that want to beat me down then know this..I am on a daily fight with our government to simply provide a simple replacement card. Nothing more than that. The US Embassy Colombo is restricted from doing any interviews or visa issues because Trump chose to do an EO extension banning entry of anyone. You wonder why I hate the blind and ignorant Trump cult? It's because they cannot process anything and my wife an kids, of which they lived in the US before, cannot come home until a very simple ID card is replaced. So, I say again. Thank you. I am so freaking humbled by what happened last March that there are no words that could exonerate my point of need. Thank you to all! Thank you! You have made life better for many in a time of need beyond me. However, until my family comes home and we can enjoy the life many of you are taking for granted then I struggle day to day, my wife struggles day to day and my son and daughter grow more doubtful that they will see their Daddy again. I am actually getting tears writing this and I beg those of you that donated, if you want your money returned then I will do my best to return it, but my number one goal is to see my family again and one year is more than many of you would find acceptable. I miss them, they miss me. I won't ask anyone to walk in my shoes but please understand our moment. Long story and yet it doesn't cover it all..please let me at least be able to voice my opinions as it really is all I have here in the USA until my family arrives. Work and saving every dollar to pay for the US government (try working with them and you will know how they take your money) and to pay for my family to come back home. It isn't cheap! Mutz...never will i forget you! Ever! Respect to all! I am not a beggar and if anyone needs their money returned then I will do the best I can after my family gets back to the USA. I promise that.
