I remember when I was running around a coffee table in my living room in my house when I was 6 and I was told to stop by my dad several times but since I was sort of young I didn 't understand and I kept going. Then suddenly I fell and at first I didn 't think anything happened but then when I touched my lip I realized that I was bleeding a lot from the lip. That 's when the pain kicked in. I started panicking and crying. My dad took me and got the car ready to take me to the hospital. When we got to the surgery room it took 2 doctors, mom, dad, and a nurse to hold me down because that 's how much it hurt. But I just kept squirming and squirming so it kind of made it worse. It also made it a little bigger so my scar is really visible. But eventually I stopped squirming and everything was alright. Finally it was over and everyone was happy that it got done. If it hadn 't got done then I could either bled out or I could of had very, very bad lips. That could have affected me in playing in the “Mexico Dixie Gray Marching Band” like I do today. I now have a scar in the right bottom corner of my lip because of it. The scar …show more content…
So that is the story of that event in my life. It was a hard event that took place in my life but what is life without the struggle right? You always have to be prepared for what 's to come in life whether that may be your mom dying or your pets dying (bad things). To your first ATV or your first visit to a state fair or a world fair in that matter (good things). What about your first job or your first car or for instance your first marriage. (also good things). These are all very important things in life and I hope if these ever occur to me I hope they will be challenging and be very interesting all at the same time. Even though many of this stuff has already occurred to me. These are the events that make your life just a little bit more interesting and will shape my life for the future to come someday
The Mighty Trojan Marching Band: Garner’s Unsung Talent Written By: Lauryn Gibbs The Mighty Trojan Marching Band marches to a cadence played by the drumline to Friday night football games. At the games, the band plays stand tunes such as the Garner High classic ‘Hey Baby’. During halftime, the band performs their marching show. During third quarter, the band goes on break.
The Madison Scouts are the epitome of a marching band. The longest running “official” marching band in existence has a very long history. They however were and continue to be very successful in the drum corp world. Winning multiple world and DCI championships, The Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps continues to be the only strong male Drum Corp in existence. It was in the depression year of 1938 that a group of Madison, Wisconsin, businessmen attended a Racine Scouts performance and forthwith decided that Madison needed its own drum corps.
Tragedy marred my childhood, I witnessed my two baby brothers die as infants. My mother passed away when I was only 14 years old. And my father died three years later. However, my aunt orphaned us which helped my sister and I obtain an excellent education, which was unusual for women in
It all came down to this. All of the long hours of hard work, all leading up to this one final practice. Next Saturday the Liberty High School Marching Band would be competing at the FootHill Band Review and every member had to give it their all if we wanted to have a successful practice. It was a brisk October night, the leaves on the trees were turning a beautiful auburn, and the sun disappearing into a golden sea behind Mount Diablo. As we got into our formation in the parking, I felt the brass slowly turning my hands numb as I held my trumpet.
Out of all the things I would do in high school, nothing would impact me more than joining the North Rangers Marching Band. It would give me more skills than any other aspect of my life that would prepare me for a future and allow me to evolve from a shy child to an adult with skills that prepared me for my future. I went into high school as a shy kid, with no true direction, at least until I discovered my schools marching band. Although coming in two years behind most of me peers, I knew that this was where I was meant to be, and with that, my mind was set and I was determined. Throughout the next two years, I would face countless difficulties with this that felt at times like tests of my willpower and what this band meant to me, but luckily I would push through, and in the end, would be left with a stronger person.
The day was 9/11/01 a plane crashed into the tower there 's was black smoke everywhere at the time I was 12 years old. And I was surrounded by fire and my leg was smashed under a desk I was in pain. There were four other people that were not dead or passed out on the floor. There was blood everywhere I was on floor 77 and the four other people.
It was the middle of summer when it happened. I was about 9 years old and my mom and dad had just called me into my mom’s room. I had had a medical procedure about a couple of weeks before hand so I wasn’t surprised when they said it was about the results. They started talking to me about the results when they finally told me the main thing that had showed up.
I’ve gone through hardships and trying to keep my own family together. Someone very dear to my family has passed on and it was one of the most horrible things i’ve experienced as a young child myself. I was 12 too when i’ve experience loss, at the time I couldn’t cope I was in denial and agony. But eventually I had to learn to grow up and accept what has happened and help my family in the process.
I got my speaker from my room, then took off running back outside with my speaker and my knife in my hand. Without watching where I was going I tripped on my pumpkin and fell on Adam with my knife going right into his stomach. I was so scared and in shock, I had no clue what had happened. I got up and saw the knife in Adam and I screamed for my mom. She came running very fast to see what had happened.
I was born and raised in Gulfport, Mississippi, an area immersed in a relaxed coastal culture and a vibrant jazz and blues heritage. Gulfport is located right off the Gulf of Mexico and less than an hour from New Orleans, Louisiana. Living near the Gulf, heavily influenced my childhood, I would spend weekends at the beach, and long hours traveling to distant islands far from the coast I called home. The music you would hear at the beach were always from timeless Americana artist; such as, Bob Dylan and Jonny Cash. My parents, not musicians themselves, were infatuated with the music of the late 1980’s from artists like Prince, Michael Jackson, and Journey.
My life was great and I did not feel anything wrong in my life. Until my freshman year in high school, around April my grandfather had been admitted to the hospital and that had been the third time in the row in the span of a few months. I did not know how to feel, and I did not know if I should have felt sorrow or been strong because he was the strongest person I knew and I knew he would get through it. My family had prayers here and there, so I took part in them because I was asked not because I felt as though I needed to.
Easy to encounter, not so easy to overcome, failures claw at hopes and successes. They bring down those who are weak enough to let them in. They strengthen those that can get past them. I got past one that almost ruined my chances for new opportunities.
This event changed my life for the better and without going through that tough time I would not have been able to see the light of all situations, in reality and when I
Then 9 months later on February 16, 1999, at 3:10 am my precious son came out of my womb and placed on my chest. It was the most amazing experience ever, but also extremely exhausting thing ever! I was in the hospital for about another week till the doctor told me to go home, funny thing is that I got discharged on my birthday February 21, 1999, which I turned 16. At first, it felt like being a mother was easy, but in reality, it wasn 't because I also had to go to school plus he would always wake me up in the middle of the night, and be in an extreme of exhaustion. I started missing school more and more till I finally dropped out.
