Remembered Event Narrative
At that moment they realized that there was something wrong. I never showed weakness to someone else before so I did not know what to say. I just in broken English explained what had happened. They told me to get in the car. From there they rushed me home. As I got out of the car so did my friend’s father. He went to my house door with me and waited for my mom to come so he could offer his assistance. Though it was a kind gesture I just thought that we did not need it and well we never took him up on his offer of driving us to the hospital. Honestly at that moment because everything was going so fast we did not even know which hospital he was in. As I finally got into my house I popped open my laptop and began to search for hospitals near the expressway that he got hit and my mother and I started to dial every number listed. After maybe two or three we finally got the right hospital and we without even thinking departed to the hospital.
Thinking back now if it was not for the events that happened that day that revealed to me that life can change on a dime-one minute I am goofing around, the next I receive a call that causes me to panic. I guess I would still be carefree. After that day my father survived with serious injuries and was immobilized for the next few months. In that time I had to step up in my family and take on more responsibilities
