An Unforgettable Day
I will never forget the day I passed my written driver exam and got my permit. The instructor just informed me that I passed and he was reviewing the junior driver restrictions with me as I was full of smiles. Meanwhile, I looked oer at my protoactinium and he was staring at his bring forward with a strange look. The instructor and I just ignored him and went on with our own business. Excuse me sir, provided I must take this shriek my father rudely interrupted. I was so embarrassed because there were signs any wholly over the DMV office that read, cell phones must be turned off.He opened his phone and said, Hello? The look on his face was unforgettable as he turned as white as a ghost. My pascal didnt need to say one word in order for me to k instantly something was wrong, his face said it for him. My first thought was that soulfulness was in the hospital or had died. Although no one had died, little did I know that phone phone was going to change my life forever. The c eve ry was from the North Middleton throw out De activatement and they informed my father that he undeniable to get to the kinsfolk as soon as possible. My protactinium was nigh to shut his phone when suddenly I percolated my baby on the phone.All I could hear was her crying hysterically and screaming Fire I had one thought going through my head at that moment, and it was my niece, Myleeah. Did my sister get her out of the house in time? She was except six months old and I adored her more than anything in the spotless world. We ran out of the DMV office both in complete shock. Needless to say, my dad was driving similar Jeff Gordon at Daytona. At this point I didnt even know how to prepare myself. The thought of my house tan to the acres didnt seem to be real. I kept telling my dad it probably wasnt even that bad and to cut short driving like a crazy man.The drive from the DMV office to my house is only a fifteen minute drive, but it felt like forever. Finally subsequently running red lights and driving off the side of the road, we were half a mile away from the house. All we could see was black smoke modify the sky and floating ashes. This is when reality hit me and I thought non only did I lose my home, but also my baby niece. I began to break down in tears and pray that everyone was safe. We finally pulled into my neighbourhood which was full of fire trucks, police cars, and black ash. Since all the roads were bar off, we jumped out of the running car and started running to the house.The police tried to stop my dad, but he zoomed right by them. I attempted to survey him but the police officer grabbed my arm. Let go, thats my house I screamed at the top of my lungs. I then eventually caught up with my dad in front of the raging fire and we stood there in surprise. It was a hot, dry, windy August day and there was nothing the fire fighters could do, but watch it burn. I finally found my sister sitting in our inhabits yard with black ash all ove r her. As I began to approach her, I didnt see her baby, Myleeah. I froze closely three feet in front of her and felt my legs go numb.Myleeah? I said under my breath with sorrowfulness. I was thinking that she was in the house burning to death, and someone had to do something. When I got enough courage to head up to my sister and ask where Myleeah was, she informed me that she was safe in our neighbors house. Hearing that she was safe was the happiest moment of my life. I was full of merriment and relief. At that point I didnt care to the highest degree all my clothes, jewelry, shoes, and purses I was just delighted to hear my family was safe My father walked over and sat in between us and put his arms some my sister and me.We sat there in silence as all the ashes of our belongings gently landed on us like snowflakes. Having my sister and father next to me, I realized all I cared about and all I needed was my family. People always talk about life changing events and now I know exactly what that means. I always thought that nothing traumatic would ever happen in my life, but I was obviously completely wrong. Now when I hear about or see someone else facing a hardship, I see the same pain that I once felt. My house burning to the ground changed my life and taught me many life lessons that I will clear within myself forever.First it taught me that life is not about materialistic things and you never realize what you have until it is completely gone. The most important thing in life is having your family members by your side and I was extraordinarily grateful to be able to see my father, sister and niece that next day. A big part of life is about making it better and taking anything that crosses someones path as a learning experience. I also now understand many challenges will come my way, but how I parcel out these challenges is what will make me a better person.
