The following is an article about an occurrence that happened in my life and had an unexpected influence on me. There are several events in our life that either make us happy or unhappy. I just become the victim of a snatch thief. This is one experience I will never forget. It was an experience that eternally altered my life.
It was a typical Saturday morning, and I was on my way to school for extra lessons. To get to school, I had to ride the city bus. As I strolled down the street from my house, I saw how congested it was. Buses, automobiles, taxis, bikers, and pedestrians produced a frenzy that would easily frighten anyone. As I went along the pedestrian walkway towards the bus stop, I kept calm. My mind was elsewhere, though, because I was obsessed with the looming midterm exam. Suddenly, a motorcycle that was traveling beside me yanked on my bag, which was dangling from my shoulder. The power of the moving car caused me to spin around and reel. I felt a strong draw. I was splayed on the pavement in a fraction of a second. I felt numb, and everything around me blurred. I could hear others yelling, but I was too disoriented to respond and too startled to even stand up. After that, I had no recollection of anything. I regained consciousness. My legs and arms were wrapped while I was in the hospital. Despite this, I had no sensations of pain. I was simply too weak to move.
‘Wait, what happened?’ I kept asking myself this question. How could this have happened to me? I wondered. My parents, sister, and brother were present, and their solemn expressions warned me that something was wrong. The doctor eventually told me the bad news. I was now crippled and could never walk again for at least a year. I was taken aback and didn’t know what to say. I had a lump in my throat. The tears that streamed down my cheeks slowly soaked my pillow. I’m stronger now, but I need to work on being more self-assured. I’ve learned to pray and hope for the day when I’ll be able to move around in my wheelchair. It is one experience that has transformed my life and that I will never forget.
