On July 15th, 2014 at 8:56 p.m. you made a decision that cannot be undone. But for me, I was coming home from my moms birthday, as happy as can be knowing that she’s cancer free. The sun has set and the moon lit the night. It was peaceful, a nice drive home with no harm in sight, or at least I thought. I knew something wasn’t right when I saw 2 beaming headlights…. It all happened too fast. I had no time to react, then everything went black. I opened my eyes seeing that I’m on the side of the road. Police lights shine in the night. Maybe I blacked out for a bit. I get up and something doesn’t feel right. Everything is numb and quiet. I try to call out someone to help me, but there is no sound. I walk up to my car and look in the window, and to my horror, I see my dead body. Is this what it is like to be dead? No! I don’t want this! Go back! Then I see you. You did this to me! You took it all! You took that phone call! But why did you take the call that ended my life?
