I believe life is precious. You can only live one life, unfortunately. Death, can sweep you away in an instant. Some people just allow it to happen, but others are only too stubborn to quit. A person is had by me in my life who has experienced this, along with myself.

In late January with this past year, 2009, I experienced a experience that is traumatic. My mother was driving my pal, me, and my brothers to my dad’s house. My brother that is youngest, my friend, and I also, were within the backseat and my eldest brother was in the passenger seat. My pal, my cousin, and I also were joking around and laughing into the backseat, when out of the blue, the global world went black. I opened my eyes moments later simply to see my mother crying helplessly and weakly for help. I looked to my left, where my buddy was, she was calling on her behalf mother, saying “I want my mom, where is my mom?” and complaining that her shoulder hurt. When I looked to my right, and saw my little brother crying, and breathing harshly and“Mom that is saying up, Mom. ” I, felt like crying but could not, I experienced to help keep my buddy and my friend, who will be both couple of years younger than me, calm. My eldest brother, surprisingly was fine. He asked me if I was alright, and I also responded by saying, my head hurts. My buddy suddenly looked over the side of my face, and said “Jade put your gloves in your face.” I happened to be wondering why so of course it was done by me, then looked down within my glove, only to recognize that my head was bleeding. It absolutely wasn’t painful though, it absolutely was just, numb. I kept pressure back at my head, still using my glove. Then, I heard my brother that is eldest say, “Get out from the car.” First my friend walked out, accompanied by myself, and my younger brother walked out to one other side.

As soon as we were fully from the motor car, my mom was still trapped inside. Her door was indeed caved in and she was not able to move. I shed a tear, then quickly ran across the now, very backed up intersection, towards the gas station throughout the way. There is a college boy that is aged there, on a cell phone, seemingly calling 911. I stood there for a moment, until I saw him hang up the phone. I said politely “Can you please call my dad?” He responded by saying, “Of course, sweetie, of course, what’s the true number?” I quickly told him and he dialed right away. I heard my father’s deep soothing voice say “Hello?” “Yes, hello I am…” he said his name, “ and I also am standing here at the intersection of 6th street and Walnut with your daughter, her mother and siblings have just experienced a very bad car accident” said the guy. “ I will likely be there right away” I heard my father say. A police officer walked up to us and told us it was too cold to be standing outside, and rushed us to his car.

My brothers, my buddy and I were sitting when you look at the police car whenever we suddenly saw my dad sprinting toward my mother’s car and seeking around, obviously wondering where we were. The doors don’t open from inside in a police car, and so I tapped regarding the window, directing toward my brother who had been standing outside, and told him to start the entranceway. He opened the hinged door, and then I told him that my father was there, I spotted him again, then ran into his arms. Only at that point, there were firefighters prying my mother’s car door open, and carrying her out on a stretcher. I watched given that ambulance rushed her away, began to cry, after which realized that my little brother was standing right next to me. He was not breathing well and his face was beat red. My little brother is an asthmatic, and so I immediately alerted a medic.

Just then, a medic walked as much as me, and started initially to clean alcohol rub to my face. She then put a cotton bandage from the side of my eye. The cut was not as bad as most of the blood managed to make it look. Health related conditions then told me to go then find my brothers follow her to the ambulance.

After we were within the ambulance, among the medics inside put my little brother on a breathing machine, which basically, was just helping him to breathe better and also to get oxygen back into his lungs. My friend and I were on a ledge seat because of the window and my oldest brother was sitting on a chair into the back, and my father was sitting at the start aided by the person driving the ambulance.

We quickly arrived during the hospital where we were each assigned an area, my friend and I were in a room together, and my brothers were each in their own rooms.

If we could go see my mom and she said we could after we had all been released to go, I asked the nurse. We went into my mom’s room in the recovery floor. She had a lip that is bloody told us that she cracked her pelvic bone, and broke a number of her ribs.

This is how I realized which you don’t know how much you love someone, until they truly are fighting because of their life just for them to live to visit your face everyday.

My mom is my idol. She has fought on her life so that you can stay static in mine and my siblings’. She’s got dumped guys she really liked, because she understands that when things are real bad, we have been those who help her cope with it the absolute most. She’s got even gone days without eating to ensure we could eat.

I look to my mom for everything, and am hoping she will be available for a long time.

Death, can sweep you away in an instant. Some people just let it happen, but others are just too stubborn to quit.
