When the softball season ended my mom found out was pregnant with my brother Colton. As I thought we were a normal family, but chris would leave and wouldn’t come back for days. My mom would worry because with three children, having a job and paying bills it was a lot for my mom to take on. My family and I had to move from one house to another because my mom couldn’t come up with the money to pay rent. We became almost homeless many times. When Chris came home he would act like he didn’t leave and tell my sister and I he went away for work, sometimes when he would leave I would ask my mom, “Mommy where did chris go” and she would say “He’ll be back” or “he’s at work, he’ll be home soon”. I knew something was up but it took a minute for me to figure it out because I was young. When we moved for the fourth time we got settled into a house. The year was 2012 my mom was pregnant with my little sister named Alleigh, chris started to straighten up after she was born but it was too long before he left again. There would be nights my mom would sit outside and drink until she would come inside and fall over. I wouldn’t understand why, I would try and comfort her the best way I
It was Wednesday morning, 6:30am, and yes I had to go to school. I remember calling and begging, asking if I could take the day off, but mom wasn’t having any of it, so I had to get ready. The pain was gone, which I was fortunate about, but I still felt ill. I hopped into the shower, washed up, and when I got out I collapsed. White light again, but this time it was all I could see. I closed my eyes. I was on the floor, unable to move. After what seemed like an eternity, I finally opened my eyes. I went straight to my bed, and fell asleep. I woke up a mess, and felt worse than before. I looked at my phone, and saw at least six hundred missed called from mom. I called her, fearing for what was to come. “WHERE ARE YOU? WHY DIDN’T YOU GO TO SCHOOL?” She screamed. “I’m at home. I didn’t go to school because I feel worse than before. I really need to go to the hospital.” I whimpered. She told me that we’ll go when she comes back from work, and I agreed. Back to sleep I went. I wake up to my mom rushing into my room. She signaled to get ready by moving her head quickly forty-five degrees to the left. I got ready to leave, and we left at around
It is seven thirty in the morning. I am walking down the hallway after arriving at school. I turn the corner and my best friend Heidi starts running at me with tears in her eyes, and a very pale complexion. I immediately know something is wrong. She then proceeds to tell me that she woke up this morning and her mom did not come home from work last night, and the police were now looking for her. Two hours later she was called down to the office with life shattering news. I was called down to the Principal's office an hour after Heidi was, discovering the news that the mother of my lifelong

During my sophomore year, I became depressed and antisocial due to problems in my life. My mother has been sick with a brain tumor since 2009 and she was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2012. It has been very hard on me and especially for my mother. I worry about her because she has shown signs of severe depression, she often talks about that she would rather be dead than alive anymore. After all of the pain, all of the humiliation of not being able to walk well, the embarrassment of not being able to write well, all of the staring and comments I would hear about my mother, she is still strong. After 6 years of pain and suffering along the way, I do not blame her. Everything seems to get worse. She now needs surgery due to avascular necrosis that was caused by many years of chemotherapy. I began to lose motivation slowly because I did not have any friends in any of my classes and I felt like I was stuck in a
Linda was O’Brien’s first experience with death and the loss of a close friend or loss of a person in his life. She represented young and innocence in life. After Linda died, O’Brien kept her alive by dreaming of her all the time, he even looked forward to sleeping just so he could see her. This was the beginning of his storytelling and keeping people alive with his mind or through stories. She represents the loss of innocence and loss of childhood. This representation is an example of the young soldiers who lost their lives and drastically changed in the war. When she died and Timmy saw her dead body he realized that people die and your friends can die; which is something the soldiers experienced for the first time. O’Brien keeping her alive
Kaely Camacho, also known as Ca”Nacho Cheese”, Is someone I was close with a cared very deeply for since my early childhood. In 8th grade, the year 2012, I lost my best friend. This time I couldn’t fix it with a simple “I’m sorry”. It wasn’t expected or even properly explained. On April 13, 2012, my 13-year-old best friend died in a car accident. She had the prettiest blonde hair, and blue eyes that compared to the ocean water.
Our mom Julia had overdosed and the EMTs did everything they could but she was pronounced dead hours ago with J right beside her. Julia wasn't my biological mother but she had raised me alongside J my entire life. My dad had been with her for a while back when I was younger and she even used to say that he was like the Kurt Cobain to her Courtney Love, he hadn't died or anything but after getting too comfortable he ran off and dumped me onto Julia like some hand me down.
Sadie, Tyler, and Savannah are darling, loving children with an infectious curiosity that is a joy to witness. They have each made significant gains developmentally and emotionally following a rough start in life as evidenced by their early medical histories. The children continue to mature emotionally in a stable, loving, home using consistent strategies to parent the children. Identifying their medical, developmental, and emotional needs has allowed the necessary services that have supported their primary care provider and maternal aunt, Kristy Cummings, in caring for each child's individual needs including the strategies/interventions to support challenging behaviors.

Throughout the years of high school we always had about two or three classes together. But that year was different we only had one class. She was still my friend so of course we still would hang out. But one day Asia and I were walking to class together talking about our upcoming birthdays and what we were thinking about doing. She was born on September 29, 1997 and mine is on October 3rd but I was born a year before her. Her birthday was the next week so she was really excited, I couldn’t stop her from talking about it every day in class. No sooner than that I haven’t talked to her on that weekend because her phone was off. On Sunday my other friend Tianna (yes we have the same name spelled differently) called me crying hysterically and I was trying to figure out why and what was wrong. She finally comes out and tells me Asia was being sent to the hospital I asked why but she doesn’t know. I told her that she needed to calm down and that Asia did have asthma maybe she could have had a bad attack or something. But most likely she was going to be alright because she was a very strong girl. She was probably going to be back in school Tuesday or Wednesday. We hung up and I prayed that everything was going to be alright and she was going to make it
When I was Prior to this situation, I was moving to Charlotte, NC, the following day that this situation happened. But that’s when I got a phone call when I was in Charlotte that my cousin got shot I didn’t think it was true real. That phone call was the day that I lost myself and who I was as a person. I can remember it like it was yesterday when I got a phone call from Andrew’s fiancé and baby mama to be. When she called me, I knew that something was wrong as soon as she got on the phone. I thought the problem was with her because before I left New York Andrew asked her to marry him and we found out that she was pregnant. When she told me that she was healthy and the baby was okay, I didn’t think that she would say what she said to me. She told me that my cousin Andrew had been shot numerous times in his back and chest. I yelled, begging her to not be lying to me. She started crying, telling me that she doesn’t know how she is going to be without him, that she was going to kill herself and the baby just so that she can be with him. When this happened it really hurt me and a lot of our family. Who would ever think that Andrew’s best bud would be the worst enemy? I just knew that if I didn’t have a big mouth and I didn’t tell anyone he would still be here. All I thought about was the fact that it was my fault. I just knew that he would have been at my graduation, or would have
As I headed back to school after the August recess, I was in a somber mood. It was my final year in high school and with the certificate of secondary school examinations closing in, I was still uncertain about it. Earlier on, my mother bid me farewell with words of encouragement for the forthcoming exams. She was bed ridden at that time and in my absence there was no one else who would take care of her but my three younger siblings. I contemplated quitting school and staying home for her sake but she adamantly insisted that I go back. She reassured me that all would be well. Unfortunately three weeks later, she passed on, just two months to the start of my examinations. Although inauspicious, these circumstances were pivotal in defining my
comes back full force. My straight A’s start to drop to D’s and E’s, I quit all my after-school activities, stopped talking to everyone, and started to skip school almost everyday. I had always struggled with depression, but it had never been this bad before, I felt like I was drowning and she was pulling me down with her. I struggled a lot with my depression, I had to go to the emergency room twice during the school year for suicide attempts, I just wanted to give up on everything. During this time things kept getting worse and worse, tension kept on building between my mom and me and I still hadn't seen my dad. I remember that night so clearly as if it was yesterday. My mom and I had been arguing all day, We were in my room and kept on arguing
