Broken Heart Emoji
Fire alarms and police sirens, blaring in a mothers ear but all she can hear is her baby’s voice in her head as she holds on tightly to her husbands hand wondering what they could’ve done to prevent this moment. Little brother is sitting at home wondering why mommy and daddy ran out in such a rush, only knowing something is very wrong. He doesn`t understand what his parents mean when they say sissy isn’t coming home tonight or any night at all. Parents are at a lost for words they thought they did everything right. The school is a quiet place and all her friends are broken hearted, they wonder if it is their fault. When the parents sit down with the police to talk about the report they told them she sent a text right before she crashed, a broken hearted emoji, and that was the perfect way to describe how they felt.
Just this year I had a fellow class mate roll over on one of our hills because she was driving recklessly and under the influence. That one mistake almost cost her and many others their life’s. One we weren’t sure was going to make it. That moment impacted me tremendously because it showed me that it can happen to anyone even people I know. It was a scary moment for all of us.
