A Special Place
I have a special place no one else knows. I'm the only one who goes there. I can be alone there, reset there. It's a break from the world. I can travel to my special place any time I want. Any season, any day. Maybe one day I'll build a cabin and live there. I have no need of cellphones, or computers. No need of video games or movies. Those things are nice, but nature is nicer.
Making it to Heaven
Making it to Heaven By: Ann Larual One minute I was walking down the sidewalk mentally reviewing what needed done today, the next minute there was the squealing of tires, crunch of metal, and Pain. It was intense pain that seemed to radiate throughout my whole body. I tried to move. Nothing. Tried to speak. It was the same. Nothing came out. Then things got really weird. All the noise that I’d been hearing, people screaming, horn blaring, sirens, and someone talking to me, I think, just seemed to fade away. Until I heard nothing. It was the same way with my vision. It just faded from a flurry of activity and panic around me to, well, nothing.
