I worked at a retail store in Bloomfield, New Jersey after school and on the weekend. I began working at an early age because I want to stand on my own feet and I do not want to rely on my family.

The Shot When I was 1 year old my mother first described to me about the dangers of hunters. “That they are strange beings, and that don’t care about us at all… That is how your father died” my mother said, as my mother was telling me this a tear fell down my eye, and I felt like I would never feel happiness again. I was 8 months old when it happened. My father was down at the pond about a quarter of a mile away from where we lived. I remember it like it was just yesterday.

Monday came and we started class with a free write reflecting on how good we did on the essay. I wrote that I was confident that I was going to get a seventy on it.

It was the summer of 2006 and, because my parents divorced when I was 5 years old, I was visiting my dad for his allotted two months in the summer. The Fourth of July has always been my stepmom, Brooklyne’s, favorite so we went down to her parents house in Montrose, Colorado. Brooklyne had planned for my step cousins to come down and we would all spend a couple days at my grandparents house. Then on the fourth we would drive down to Telluride, Colorado because they always have a huge festival on the fourth and it was only an hour and thirty minutes from my grandparents house. When we arrived at my grandparents house there was excitement in the air due to the fact that we would soon be taking the trip to Telluride.
