Mica is Pozega region's hero: Her lost an arm 45 years ago but works hard, supporting his family
Mica doesn't complain, although the only income in the Jovanovic household is his small pension, which he earned as a night guard
When you think you don't have something, or that you are missing something to be happier, remember that Milomir "Mica" Jovanovic from the village of Pilatovici has not had one of his arms for a whole 45 years, and despite all the troubles that befell him - lives with a smile on his face!
"When I was 20 years old, a thresher ripped my arm out from my shoulder and from that day my struggle began. I am often asked why I need to work all day long, disabled as I am, but when misfortue forces you, you have no choice," Mica tells RINA.
Neighbors say this man is the biggest fighter in the village, but also in the entire Pozega area, because with only his five fingers, he feeds three other members of his family: his wife and two sick sons.
"I do hard labor without any problems. I mow my own and other people's meadows. I cut trees with a chainsaw, but I designed a mechanism here. I put a leather strap on it, then around my neck and hold it that way. No problem. However, this fall a beech tree fell on me and I was in a coma for a while, a neighbor came by and rescued me, who knows what might have happened to me," this fighter says.
The greatest support in his life was his wife Vukosava, with whose help Mica put a facade on their house, built a barn and another auxiliary facility.
"She's a big fighter. She has dedicated her entire life to our sick sons. For their medicines alone, we need about 8,000 dinars a month, and in our household I'm the only one who can earn that, and that's why, no surrender," he says.
But Mica doesn't complain, although the only income in the Jovanovic household is his small pension, which he earned as a night guard.
"I carry all the weight of my life on my shoulders. What the one above gave me, I accepted and did not falter. I often like to sing and immediately this everyday struggle gets easier," Mica concluded, sending a message to all those who give up easily under pressure and before problems!
