All of the family works hard except for the father, he is always out
Torah while his daughters earn the only income the family gets. He was a
freak\' that did nothing else to help his family through their hardships. And
that bothered me, the reader, the most was the fact that the daughters had to

considering the pay was so little. But with this little pay she was able to
