The story of Tatay George from Tiaong, Quezon touches a lot of netizens because, despite his disability, he really wants to work hard to provide for his family.
As a matter of fact, in a photo posted by a netizen, you can see Tatay George selling vegetables along with his baby aboard his tricycle.
Apparently, Tatay George has already faced too many difficulties in his life ever since he was a child. His mother actually left him in a boat at such a young age.
Good thing his grandparents saw what his mother did, and they decided to take him in and raise him.
Tatay George’s grandparents raised him until he was 8 years old. At that time, his father decided to take him back.
However, it was not a happy reunion. Tatay George’s father forced him to work at a very young age, or else he would beat him up.
Even though his father was so cruel to him, to the point he never once supported his education, Tatay George did not hold grudges.
Tatay George still went to school and work at the same time, to provide for their family.
Eventually, Tatay George got sick. It started with just a fever that gradually lead to his legs being paralyzed.
Despite his situation, Tatay George persevered in his studies. His father kicked him out of the house when he graduated elementary.
Furthermore, good things still happened to Tatay George. He met good people along the way, and one of them even gave him a tricycle that he can use to earn a living.
Right now, Tatay George uses his tricycle to sell different kinds of vegetables.
