Essay:

The first thing that everybody notices about my parents is that my mother is quite a bit taller than my father. She’s at least six inches taller, eight in heels. I guess that was my first lesson in unconditional love: It’s not conventional. That is only one of the many lessons my parents have given me on life.
I could describe in the next 800 words every single thing my parents have done for me over the years. I could describe them with such vague terms as “loving” or “caring.” Instead, I will tell you what I have learned from them. They never sat me down and told me these things in so many words, I simply learned from them by their example and by their love.
One very important thing that my parents taught me was how to laugh. My mother’s laughter is one of the first things that I imagine when I think of her. My father’s laugh is always accompanied by a great big genuine smile that can almost never be caught in a picture, but is always the first smile that comes to my mind. It isn’t just the ability to laugh that they taught me, but also the desire to laugh. When I would say something incredibly foolish or my father’s foot would fall in a hole in the pavement, we would simply laugh at it with enough joy that even the victim would have trouble keeping a straight face. I can remember my father inhaling helium from birthday balloons and making us laugh until we cried. It is still impossible to spend an entire family dinner without genuinely laughing at least once.
Another major thing that I learned from my parents is the fact that we are only human, but we should never settle to be just that. My father has always been the smartest and strongest man I’ve ever known. Indeed, I often picture him as a super hero with valiant self sacrifice for the good of others. I could never picture being as great as him. My mother was always trying harder than any other woman I knew and would not complain or sell out short for anyone. When she participated in Tae-Kwon-Do, she did not stop until she earned her black belt. When she and I worked on jigsaw puzzles together late into the night, she would always need to say up for that one last piece.
That is not to say that they have been perfect in everything they’ve done. I can remember my mother crying when her bosses told her she wasn’t doing well enough or my father was pulled over for speeding. Each of them took these drawbacks as they came and accepted them. But it was after they failed that I saw my parents shine the brightest; for once fallen, they each picked themselves up and began running harder than ever. Perhaps I could say that I learned how to fail from my parents, but it would be better to say that I learned how to stand back up again.
Everything I know about respect I learned from my parents. The one time that I got in the most trouble with them was when I walked into a store without holding the door for an old woman. My parents demanded that I respect everybody, even the teachers I didn’t like or the bullies that picked on me when I walked home. To me treating others how I want to be treated is not simply a rule or a mantra. It is a way of life, a part of every one of my days. My parents have always respected me, and I have always respected them above anyone else.
It is my parents that I have to thank for every bit of who I am today. I can soundly say that of all of the things I learned from them, the most important was love. Love is not just something that can be proven or described in examples. But I can say this: From the earliest I can remember, my mother always said “I love you” when she tucked me in, and when I was in trouble, my father would say, “You know we still love you. We will love you always, no matter what.”
