I was born in southern Sudan.I lived with my mother and father,grandparents,and two sisters in a small mud-and-thatch house.We were considered wealthy because my father owned many cattle. As a young boy, I was frightened of these big animals."I am too small to care for such big animals".I cried when my father told me i would have to learn to tend the cattle.My father just smiled."Garang, be brave,"he said."Your heart and mind are strong. There is nothing you cannot do".
