The job of a second generation immigrant has always been clear to me. I am a builder. Sometimes it frustrates me how little my parents understand this, but how can they? They are the hunters. You need to be to leave everything and start over in a land where you will never quite fit in because you will never know all of the things the natives take for granted. Hunters don't care, can't care. You could not leave it all. It would tear you open (and it probably does). So important is your goal, so single-minded is your aim.
