Let's begin..Shall We?
Well my story begins about 4 years ago. On March 8th, 2008, my life changed forever. This is the day my great-grandmother died. I was coming in from my grandmother's house when my mother got a phone call.Suddenly I heard her crying..."Momma what is it, what's wrong?"
"Grandma died", "What,what happened? How?"
"Come on let's go"
On the way to my great-grandmother's house, whom I call grandmother or GG. You may see that I call her that throughout the story, everything is running through my mind as I'm praying and hoping that what I've heard isn't true, that maybe, just maybe she is sitting in her floral chair and is okay. But when we arrive I realize that what I hoped isn't true. She was DOA! I jumped out of the car, ran into the house and I saw everyone sitting in the living room crying and holding on to each other. I finally went into the bedroom and found my grandmother lying in her bed, cold, and still with her arms across her chest, peaceful as can be. That is when I broke down and my family took me outside. This is the day my life went downhill. My GG and I were close and when she died it impacted me greatly. I think my grandmother dying while I was in 5th grade kind of made me make the decisions that I made from 6th grade until now. This is my story it made me who I am today, all the mistakes, and accomplishments.
