The part of 'Home' which shocks me...

       My mother explained there would be tax benefits if I purchased her half of The Meuse. Pop and I would own it together. Pop was not working and was looking for a job, so by assigning a portion of the mortgage to me, they were able to keep cash flow going. I’m fairly sure that Charlie Tucker helped them work out the details of the transaction; maybe he even suggested it.
        A year or two later, I also bought out Pop’s share, and the deed to The Meuse was transferred to my name. This furthered my sense of obligation to work, as it was now my total responsibility to keep up the payments. Without my contribution, we really would go under. I didn’t object, for I knew how much the place meant to my mother, and I had promised long ago that I would look after her and all the family. I justified working so hard by knowing that I was  helping to maintain the roof over our heads. My passion to hold onto every home I have ever had since was influenced by the unthinkable prospect of losing The Meuse.

        妈妈向我解释说如果我来替她支付Meuse她所承担的那一部分价格,就会有税收的优惠。爹和我共同拥有它的产权。爹现在没有工作,他一直在找工作,所以如果将抵押贷款的一部分分给我的话,他们就有足够的流动资金。我毫不怀疑是Charlie Tucker帮助他们完成了整个事务的细节部分,也许他甚至建议这么做。
        一两年后,我也买断了爹的那部分房产,这样Meuse的整套房产都转移到了我的名下。这进一步激发了我工作的责任感,因为现在保持还贷的全部责任都落到了我的肩上。没有我的贡献,我们真的就要破产了。我不反对,因为我知道这个地方对我妈妈意义非凡,而且很早以前我就许诺我会来照顾她和整个家庭。我觉得我如此竭尽全力地工作,是因为我很清楚我在帮助保留着我们所有人头上的那一片房顶。受了失去Meuse之后无法想象的前景的极大影响,我产生了这么一种强烈的感情,那就是,紧紧抓住我拥有的每一个家,永不放弃。

        当我读到这段话的时候,Julie彻底让我汗颜。她在面对这样的处境的时候,只有17岁那!17岁就要为家庭挣钱,还要还房贷,想想我们17岁的时候都在干什么。。。我现在都22岁了,才能勉强保持着收支平衡(作为博士,我的宿舍一年只要900,而挣的钱却几乎刚刚够全部用来吃饭),而无法贡献出哪怕一点儿给家庭,看到这段话的时候,我真的觉得我现在居然还承担不起我该承担的责任。。。有时候我真的觉得,我应该去美国,起码在我这个阶段,读博士的时候一年可以挣到2000美金,除了日常花销,应该可以攒一点儿下来寄回家中什么的。。。Julie在我的眼中本来就是女神级的人物,Home读到这儿,我更加觉得,I adore her...
        尤其是看到这部分的最后一句话时,我的眼泪真的差一点儿下来了。。。
