I take a seat on a wooden bench underneath the cool shade of an old tree. I look to my left and see a highway full of rushing cars. To my right grassy hills fill my vision as far as I can see. In the middle of all this stands the tree. The tree was planted on the side of a well cut grass walking trail provided for the public.

My parents once told me that there are moments that can shape you, like getting your first pair of ballet shoes or lacrosse stick. But what they unwittingly neglected to mention, were the emotionally gripping experiences that can affect a person during their lifetime. It was like any normal day.

My mom, with her curly red hair, blue eyes, and a constant smile that always lit up a room, came into my bedroom, which was purple with butterfly lights. She asked, “Are you ready to go honey?” I said, “Yes,” excitedly, as I loved Easter at my grandparent’s house.
