It was august 4 3:47pm just 5 minutes before my arm would crack. My neighbor and I were upstairs in my room when she said “I’m bored let’s go outside. After 2 minutes we left my room and went into the hall. I slipped my shoes on half way and thought, once i’m in the living room I will put them on completely. The railing of the stairs measured, right by my waist, so I locked my arms. I had just started to go to the third step when my right leg slipped and I fell,landing seated. My sight turned dark as if I had been staring at the sun and white snow. For some reason I thought I had made the railing fall of the wall. I thought this because heard and felt something fall on me. I started searching for my left arm with a blurry vision. I couldn’t find it until I noticed it was hanging in between my legs. I picked it up and I felt the bone move in my arm. I called my mom and said “Mom I broke my arm!” She started helping me and I kept on saying “don’t let my arm go!” and “It keeps cracking”. My dad took me to the hospital in Hampton while my mom called my aunt and asked her if she could interpret. When we got there I sat in a gray wheelchair and got x-rays.After a couple of minutes the doctor came in and asked if he could talk to my dad. My aunt went with him to interpret. A nurse came in and injected some medicine in my hand for the pain. But while she injected the back of my hand, I heard the doctor say in the room next door, “It’s either a cyst or cancer.” I tried not
It was a normal day in New York city. I was playing basketball with my friends in the park. When I went up for a dunk, and I got fouled and flipped around and snapped my leg. My friends were saying “get some help now.” While was setting down on the floor crying, holding my leg. When my friends called the ambulance for help.
I casually walked through the park on a crisp summer day with morning dew smell still lingering in the air. Nobody is out during this time as usual. Only people awake during this hour are morning joggers and dog walkers. Of course, there was also a mother who was playing with her toddler. She catches her chocolate-brown son and tickles him, and they laugh and trip and fall together onto the floor and laugh harder. I walked by just to say hello to them as they waved back to me. I had set myself to wake up every day at this time and start running laps around the neighborhood to help lose weight. I recall running to every single spot in town on the blocks from Lang to Richland Lane were buildings in wild assortment: two drugstores, Henry Clay Frick's mansion with
Being a typical 9 year old, I bawled my eyes out. When I moved my arm, it hurt even more. My mom came over to see what all the commotion was all about and I told her what had gone on. I also told her that whenever I moved my arm, it hurt and it felt very weird. She told me we would have to head to the hospital in Columbus to go get an X-Ray to see if it was broken. Thankfully, this was after my older brother’s band’s performance. He came over to us, and my mom told what was about to happen and what we were about to do. He wasn’t happy, to say the least. After about 5 minutes of arguing, my brother lost and my mom took the rest of us to Columbus. As we got into the car, she told me to keep my arm as still as I could, to which I did. We didn’t go to the hospital right away, however, we went to McDonald’s instead to try and make me feel better with some ice cream. It worked, and made me feel glad, even until I got into the hospital. I had never had a broken bone before up until that point in my life, so I didn’t know what to expect. We sat in the waiting room for about 5-10 minutes, until the nurse came into the room to tell us that the doctor was waiting. We got into
One day i was playing with my sister and me and her were jumping over the couch to catch each other. We kept chasing each other are around then I fell it didn’t hurt so we kept playing en my sister fell and she didn't get hurt. Then I fell and it hurt.
One lovely afternoon I was at my indoor soccer game. I was in an indoor league with some of my friends and we were tearing every team we played. That day we were going to play against an academy team, which have very good players.I had arrived about two minutes before the game. I was pretty late because I had gone to go eat before with my brother. So because of that I didn’t start and I wasn’t warmed up either. Nathan, my coach was like “Hey man did you go sew your clothes?,” in a jokingly was because I was late. The game had begun now and it was already intense. It was back to back If I do say so. The first half was an exciting one as it was all tied up two to two. I had played about half of the half. Now came the second half, and later on I went on the pitch. Some kid and I jumped up into the air to win the ball. We both did, and when I fell down, I guess I landed on my hand the wrong way. I felt a sudden pain on my hand. My wrist was all jacked up. It was horrendous as I looked down at my hair in shock as It looked like the top of mountains.I couldn’t feel my hand, It hurt quite a lot when i attempted to move it. My teammates, the opponents, my coach, the referee, and my brother all gathered around me to see what had happened. I wasn’t crying or anything but I sure wanted to. Actually I really did haha. My brother questioned “ oh dang man, you good?,” and well I just looked at him in pain, I didn’t know what to say. When the ambulance arrived at the
My life changed dramatically when my son was ten months old. My husband and I decided to tell my mother in law that she cannot be a part of our lives. We had every reason to tell her because my mother in law did not come to see our son and she favored her other two grandchildren. She made promises to us that she will come to our baby shower, his birth, and to come visit more often which never happened. We were tired of getting our hopes up. we did not want our son to go through the same heart ache. Two years went past and I received news that she was going to be in town for a family function. She said she wanted to see us. I could feel in my chest, my heart pumping. Deep down my husband and I both wanted to talk to her again. This was our chance. A week before the family reunion my husband and I were nervous and wondered if that was the right thing to do for our son. We went through the week thinking of the worst thing that can happen. Finally, the day before the reunion our nerves have settled and we started to think positive. I thought to myself it will be good because our son will have his grandma and he can build his own opinion of her.

I opened my eyes and looked up to see the bars above me and the suffocating smell of chalk filled my lungs as all eyes peered down at me. I was 8 and being in a situation as extreme as this without your parents is pretty difficult. I was at gymnastics camp in Pennsylvania 4 hours away from my parents. I had no phone and no way of contacting them except through letters. This was my second year at the camp and I loved it. I was on bars trying a squat on jump to high bar which I had previously done by myself. I fell in a funny way and landed on my arm so perfectly that it broke. A complete piece of my elbow broke off. I was rushed to the hospital.
On a sunny day at summit pointe elementary. It was the school picnic and I am with my family and friends.I got on the playground. I got on the swing with my friend Ella. So I asked if she could push me on the swing. “ yes,” Ella responded. Then when she started to push I trip and fell right on my arm. “It feels broken,”I carried. I was yelling and tears wore rolling down my face. Then I ran to my dad. “ what's wrong?” asked my dad. “ My arm hurt really bad,”I yelled. So went home. I could not move my arm. 2 days later. I was at the hospital. My heart was racing because I was so worried. Then I got a pink cast. I still have my cast. “ well are you ready to go home,” asked my dad. Yes but I am never touching a swing
A few minutes after my mom’s rant the doctor came. He asked what happened and a few other questions then sent me off with another nurse to get an x-ray of my wrist. She leads me to a room with one small light shining against a table with a big camera connected to the ceiling with one little chair beside it. I sat in the chair and then placed my wrist sideways on the table. I tried to be gentle as possible. The nurse took some snapshots then took me back to the room again. The doctor then came in with a long bandage and a splint to wrap around my arm. While wrapping my arm the nurse explained what had happened to my wrist.
I was playing on the ring at with a firepole. I was going to sit on the edge. I went and tried to get up but when I It all happened I got kicked by someone on not on purpose.

It was Friedrich Nietzschehas who said, “What doesn’t kill you makes, you stronger”. I like to call these moments in a person’s life, “defining moments”. Additionally, I like most people, have had a few of these “defining moments”; probably more than one person should. Growing up, I had a hard time accepting one of my “won’t kill you-make you stronger” moments. It was a moment of betrayal and deceit, inflicted upon by a person I trusted fully and completely, with my life. My mother.
Many people influenced and events my reading and writing development throughout my childhood from my mother, my elementary librarian, and Sesame Street, to getting my first pair of glasses. We all have defining moments in our lives where we can look back and say, “That moment changed my life.” This is the story of the defining moment that changed the way I read and write, and I learned it from a whale!
I was walking back from lunch with my friend Matt, we were telling each other jokes about dead babies. I looked over and saw my little brother, I turned to Matt and said “watch this” then I ran up to my brother and tried to do a jumping high five. He didn’t think I was trying to high five him he thought I was trying to hit him. Out of instinct he pushed me away and I fell backwards, I landed and pivoted on the ball of my left foot. I thought I had gotten away safe and clear, I went to take a step and BAM! I had been tripped by my own untied shoelace, betrayed by my own apparel. I fell backwards and expected to hit lockers, unfortunately it wasn’t lockers or even a door. I had crashed into the glass display case, oh the utter humility. I hit the ground and leaned up on one arm, I was fine, not a scratch. Mrs. Wright come running up in total mom mode “ Oh my God, are you alright, AHH, don’t move!”.
