Miguel

My dad name is Michael and he had cancer and his wife was with child So they thought that He was gonna pass so they decided to name my little brother Miguel Ricardo Moore which is the Spanish translation of Michael Richard Moore The day my dad was in the cancer center being told he was cured was when his wife went into labor and it all worked out no one died

At first my mom wanted to name me Arthur. In Spanish it sounds alright but in English the name just reminds me of the geeky aardvark in cartoons. Luckily my dad swooped in and had me named after him. my mom didn’t like it too much so she added angel to it. Miguel means “one who is like God” and angel means “messenger”. So it makes me feel like I have a lot to do in this world before I leave it.
