“ I had a presentiment of it... “

Dima since the childhood travelled much. Parents tried to give to the only child all. For the first time it has appeared so far from the house one. Dima did not assign high hopes to this trip. He, as well as all at its age, wanted to see the world, find new friends, to practise English, at last, to earn a few money. The first failures with work have not broken spirit of the Voronezh student. For one and a half month, spent in America, he has had time to test on itself(himself) all street trades. In park on Manhattan Dima worked on velorikshe, and in the evenings played a saxophone. Here, as he laughed, it was known by each horse.

- Parent heart you will not deceive! These one and a half month I was stirred more than ever, - Elena Nikolaevna, mum Dimy admits. - I from the very beginning had a presentiment. I called up to the son almost every day, was well informed about all its events. Before a trip I adjusted Dimu, prepared it for that will be not always easy and cheerful. That he not strongly endured separation from the house, I have put in all pockets of its clothes small cards with encouraging words, and also candies, chocolates. Ridiculously, of course, but so it seemed to me that I am with it nearby. Still I have written it three letters. The first is a congratulation from all relatives happy birthday which he marked in America on June, 10th. The second letter it is simple the message from me. And the third letter has been written in case it will very strongly want to come back home. I spoke to it, read this letter, and to you it becomes easy. But he always spoke to me: “ No, I will not read it! I will unpack an envelope only in Voronezh “. Children joked about it, assumed that there, as well as in a greeting card, dollars lie. And Dima always knew that there not money, and parental support.

“ It is necessary to stop this stream of students from Russia in the USA! “

Last letter of Dima to read and was not in time. His death became for all the big blow.

- Now for us the main thing - to bury the son! - parents of the boy have shared. - In New York to me have promised that a body of Dimy deliver to Moscow within a week, - Igor Fursov continues. - There already are engaged in registration of all necessary documents. That will be then, we do not know. Death of our child - an original sign. It is necessary to stop this stream of students from Russia in the USA! On our children of firm simply earn money. Also there are no guarantees that your child will be not not thrown with work, will not rob and will not kill in another`s country!
