On Wednesday, April 4, 2012, my sister, Suzannah Shores, was in a car wreck and died.
That day was supposed to be a good day. It was my mom's birthday. It was sunny, the sky was blue, the clouds were white. It was just supposed to be good.
On that day, things happened, things changed. I changed. My life changed.
I was in 7th period (math class) when the office called me out. People told me I was lucky to get to leave early. I actually felt like I was lucky.
When I found out, I was NUMB! I was shocked. I didn't believe it. It was a joke...a horrible joke! I thought she would be waiting for us when we got home, but it wasn't a joke..it was a reality.
Things filled my head. So fast...too fast...no time to prepare. Everyday things made me upset. It seemed strange to see people smiling when I was so sad. My head hurt so bad, I couldn't cry. All I wanted to do was SCREAM, but I couldn't. I just knew I missed you! Already!
Certain words hurt me...they stung. Certain things made me feel bad...sick to my stomach. Just to think about you and how it happened.
I don't know exactly where I was at the time it happened, but I never dreamed that my day held such sorrow.
