When I was four months old, my mother died suddenly and my father was left to look after me all by himself. I had no brothers or sisters. So all through my boyhood, from the age of four months onward, there was just us two, my father and me. I was very lucky to have a someone who cared for me. I admire him greatly for being a father and mother. We lived in an old gypsy caravan behind a filling station. My father owned the filling station and the caravan and a small meadow behind, but that was about all he owned in the world. It was a very small filling station on a small country road surrounded by fields and woody hills. While I was still a baby, my father washed me and fed me and changed my diapers and did all the millions of other things a mother normally does for her child. That is not an easy task for a man, especially when he has to earn his living at the same time by repairing automobile engines and serving customers with gasoline.

I didn’t see anybody we knew, so I eased out on the track and pointed the bike at the first jump. As I launched off the jump, my right hand twisted the accelerator. When I landed, the back wheel dug into the ground, flipping the dirt bike out from under me. I looked over and saw smoke rising from the engine of Kevin’s bike. I didn’t know what to do. I needed time to figure out what I was going to tell Kevin and my dad. By telling the passage from John's point of view, the author helps the reader better understand A.
