We made our way to the bank and both sat down to just take everything in and about that time my uncle drove up and brought us to the house. We were soaked in thick and muddy pond water, and my grand maw made us change before we got to relax. Once my mom got home and found out about everything she panicked. Of course, when my mom was finished freaking out she called and wanted to put what had happened in the paper. She asked me if I wanted to put it on the radio and I replied “I really don’t care if you do or don’t.

My little brother walks in and asked me to take him to the store. He wanted to get some things for his daughter before we left to Cold Lake. So I went for a quick drive to town and returned home within 16 minutes. When I approached my mom’s house I beeped the horn for her to hurry up because I wanted to get there before the stores closed. Of course me I forgot it was Friday which means late night shopping.
By then I was on the ground crying with my arm fractured and my arm on the whole other side of my body. And I got up and went up to my sister in tears and she said what’s wrong I said I fell off the swing and she called my parents. My parents got there in a hurry and my dad said get on his back. I got on his back and he was off to the car. We were halfway there and he asked if I could walk for a second I said yes in tears and finally we got to the car and we headed home, as if it was like we were in a high speed chase.. We got home and my dad put me on the couch while my mom was getting me medicine.
Returning them to friends that surely would not be forgotten. One Tonka truck to the delinquents next door, then some action figures to my second best friend down the street, and finally a few beat up hot wheels to the most loyal of childhood friends. By this time reality was sinking in and the thought of sue a girl living right across the street seeing me cry was too much and I ran home without ever saying goodbye. The next morning we were packed ready to go but not to our new house but to my uncles. We were to stay the summer at his place in Williamstown until our new home was ready.
My dad showed me where most things I’d need were and what I’d have to do, “Alright now it’s your turn.” my dad got out of the car and so I jumped out too. We switched seats and it felt weird being in the driver’s seat. He told me to turn on the blinkers and the windshield wipers and told me how to start walking and everything else I’d need. “Ok, drive forward and backwards,” my dad asked me to do so because he wanted me to get a feel for the sensitivity of the car’s pedals. So I backed up and moved forward, I smiled it almost felt like a rush in a way so my excitement was peeking through more.
When Haiti declared its independence after a slave rebellion in the late 1800s, France caused massive debt and discrimination in the country when they attempted to take it back. Poverty in Haiti was made worse when the United States intervened years later, supporting the dictatorship that sent the country downhill economically and socially. America was selfishly helping themselves and building their own economy, but was simultaneously destroying the economy of Haiti. In the span of 20 years, the country went from being a rice exporter to a massive importer, but not because of their own doing. In 2010, the biggest earthquake since 1770 struck Haiti, causing over 250,000 deaths and affecting at least three million people, drastically increasing the level of poverty (“Top 5 Facts about Poverty in Haiti”).
When my mom and dad told me, my brother Timmy and Jimmy that are twins and my little sister Molly that we were going on a trip I freaked out I was so excited but they would not tell us where we are going. Mom said that grandma was coming, I was upset but i was not going to let that ruin my trip. I asked my mom if Skippy, my dog, could come and she said yes I was very happy. We loaded the car and we took the canoe so that gave me a hint of where we are going. We drive off.

In the movie when they were driving and almost hit that cow but Ben saved everybody they stopped and slept on the side of the road and Radar and his girl did what they were going to do at prom right there on the side of the road for every car passing by could see them. Also Radars girlfriend didn’t go with them in the book she didn’t even know that radar was going to New York City. In my opinion John green should have made the movie too. The movie was good in some ways like Margo was played by Cara Delevingne. And they did get to go to graduation and Quentin actually did make it to prom.
Pearl Woodrum saw her fears realized when the dam burst in 1972. As the residents of Buffalo Creek slept soundly in their beds, they would not be able to envision the horrors that would occur on that dreary February morning. They knew that any time there was a substantial amount of rainfall in Buffalo Creek, the creek would rise and the lack of an early warning system meant they might never know if a heavy rain heralded disaster until it was too late. Residents also knew that the dam was not stable, a fact the U.S. Geological Survey confirmed when it concluded that the dam was “basically stable but could be overtopped and breached.” William Davies was the federal geologist who conducted the study and stated that if the dam broke, “flood and debris would damage a church and two or three houses downstream, cover the road and wash out the railroad.” A heavy rainfall on February 25, 1972 triggered grave concern from many around Buffalo Creek. Jack Kent, the Strip Mine Superintendent became increasingly concerned about the rapidly rising water levels in the dam.
This was the second time in existence that Disney ever closed the park, the first being another hurricane.
