The Day I Thought I Was Going Die!
BOOMMM! Disappointment, disbelief and fear filled my mind as my mom’s car came to a complete stop and pinned up against a tree.
“What have I done? Please tell me this is all just a dream?”
I see blood dripping from my finger and both air bags are out. I still don’t know what happen. I’m in denial. My body is aching I’m sandwich between the tree and the metal from the car. I had something heavy on my body and I tried to push it off of me. But it didn’t work.

I can’t do this to my friends and family.” my mind continues to wonder. “Stay awake LaLisa!! Somebody is going to find you, hold on.” I kept trying to motivate myself to hold on and be strong.
“LaLisa! Oh my God! LaLisa!" It was my mom. I was disappointed and embarrassed of myself. I knew she was angry that her car was in a car accident. I tried to yell for help and to my surprise they heard me. All these people were here, I heard loud chainsaws. I knew I was about to get rescued. I could feel the weight of the car lift slowly off me. “AHHHH” I...
