Introduction

Dane Wilson 11RO. Autobiographical Extract October 11th 1999, a year I will never forget, not ever. It started off as an ordinary day until breaktime at 10.20am, it was about 10.30am and I was playing football in the lower tennis courts as any normal day. I made a pass and it was returned quicker than I anticipated. then came the worst thing I was badly tackled by a mate on the opposite team and went flying and fell to the concrete hard, hitting the ground. All I could feel was pain because my knee had rebounded off the floor twice. After I came round, I could see a big crowd of people hovering over me. Someone tried to help me to my feet but however hard I tried I just fell down again which increased the pain. There was a dinnerlady who was kneeling down at me radioing to the office for an ambulance. Steve, (the caretaker) was first to help me up and was assisting the dinnerlady to get me to hobble over to his office where I was in for a fairly long wait until the ambulance arrived. ...read more.

Middle

The next day he came round to the ward I was in and he showed me my X-rays, and what was wrong with it. He was very curious about how it had happened. He told me that there would be very little chance I would ever be able to walk again let alone play football or any sports for that matter. After he had finished he went and I was left in floods of tears for hours. The friendly bloke I met when I was brought in from school was in the bed next to me. We were talking and he had heard the doctor telling me how I won't ever walk again. I will never forget what he said to me, 'No matter what obstacles are thrown at you, God never gives you more than you can deal with. After all that has happened, you must never let anything hold you down. Take life one day at a time.' He told me this minutes before he had a heart attack and he later died. With what he had told me, I think he knew he was going to die. ...read more.

Conclusion

My nan also said that things happen for a reason but I shouldn't be sad, don't think of the years you could have had with that person but the years you did had with that person. She said I should never remember her in hospital in such a bad way but the way she was weeks before when I was in hospital. I have overcome many emotional obstacles as well as physical ones to be where I am today. Like Bob and my nan said: 'No matter what obstacles are thrown at you, God never gives you more than you can deal with.' and my nan said: 'Things happen for a reason and shouldn't be sad, don't thing of the years you could have with that person but the years you have had with that person.' Nothing will ever hold me down. I have come too far to be where I am to let it all go. I will privale and suceed no matter what the odds are. My nan taught me that I should never take life for granted and to live life to the full. ...read more.
