Here I sit in the hospital. I almost died. Our Class went to Reagan Falls to spend the day. It was great we went swimming, played beach volleyball and had a great day. Timmy hit Curt in the head with the volleyball and then ran off. A storm blew in right when we were loading on the bus to leave and we couldn’t find Timmy. I found him up on a hill and he was hurt. Lighting was everywhere and struck right next to us. Without thinking I ran in the bushes after him. I thought I got pricked by the mesquite thorns, I was wrong. One the way back to the bus, everything went white. Next thing I remember I’m in the hospital.
I got bit by a rattlesnake. They tell me the bus turned over on the way to the hospital. A bunch of the kids were hurt. We are all gonna be okay.
A lot of things went wrong that day. I didn’t stop to think. I guess that was stupid on my part. I should have waited for a teacher. Joey tried to stop me, but I didn’t listen. Let’s see, I almost got struck by lightning, a tree almost fell on me and I did get snake bit. I guess God’s angels were watching over me.
Take my advice, don’t rush into a bad situation without thinking. It could cost you your life. Get help.
