suffered my first concussion by hitting my head at the shallow end of a pool. I was thrown in the air from a shallow end of a pool to the deep end.

Reacting quickly, I blew my whistle loudly to alert the other guards nearby that I had to make a rescue. Jumping into the water with my tube in front of me, I hurriedly swam over to the girl handing her the buoy. She grabbed on tightly and began to gasp for air. It took a few minutes, but once I brought her to safety, and even though I knew she was grateful, she quickly jumped out of the pool and ran away, almost as if nothing had happened. As I went back to my position, full of adrenaline, I reflected on how odd it was to save a life when neither she nor her parents gave the event, nor me, a second thought.

I swam over to the lifeboat and got on board along with a lady and her daughter. The lady looked about 35 and the girl was about 5 and was clinging to her mother 's wet arm. They made me think about how i was clinging to my mom as she walked through the burning building with the ceiling burning and falling all over us over us.
She even cut off her own hair, thirteen years of locks gone! When she reached the spot that she needed to fix on the mast, the Seahawk plunged down into the salty waters.

Eight years. Almost half of my life I have spent in and out of one pool or another. For half of my life I have been the “fish out of water” or one of the “butterflyin’ Hawaiian twins.” I have grown so much threw swim. Looking back I am ecstatic that my mom forced me to join a summer league swim team in 2009. I must admit when I say “forced” I do mean there was kicking and screaming and crying when I found out I was going to be a Marlin.

As lifeless as she looked, her eyes were open. Smothered underwater in a baby pool on the back porch, I ran to her aid thinking she was no longer alive. Fortunately, she was still breathing and I cautiously dragged her out of the water. Tears streamed down my face as I shook her limp body in an attempt to bring her to consciousness. As a fourth grader, this was a horrendous experience, however, several other of my mother’s drunken episodes were just as terrifying.
