My worst day ever was Tuesday, January 18th, 2005. It was my worst day ever because, my family and I got into a really bad car accident. It was my mom, brother and I. My mom was driving me and my brother to our aunts so we could get on the bus to go to school. On the road that my mom and i hated, we went on it and we hit a big sheet of ice. Then we rolled the car four times. Luckily we were ok. My mom had some really bad cuts. I had some really bad cuts, bruises and seatbelt burns. My brother was ok. Thank God he was with me and my family. I prayed that night and I got a message from god in my heart that never be scared to say the word fear! After that i asked my mom what that meant, she said that it means fear can get in the way but there is always a way to overcome it!
