There is always a distinct event in someone’s life where he begins to become an adult. An event in my life that propelled me towards becoming an adult was when my mom died. My mom died in September 2009, when I was just starting the 6th grade. It happened all of a sudden, and my family did not have much time to prepare for this tragic event. At this time I was still just an eleven year old kid with the mindset that nothing could bad could happen to me.
