Extracts from this document...


A Place and Moment I'll Always Remember Why do terrorists kill in the name of religion? I still don't get it. The recent bomb blasts in New Delhi claimed several lives, but could not kill the spirit of the country and its people. The 13th of September started like any other day and I was unaware that it would turn out to be the most horrifying day of my life, a devastating experience I would never want repeated. I was in the office at around 6:40 pm when I got news of the serial blasts.

  1. An Unforgettable Experience

    Several hours later, passengers of my flight were escorted, like sheep escorted by shepherds, down a narrow walkway into the plane. The plane was flooded into by people who were abundant with colossal luggage bags. My family and I hastened to our seats and had a word-fight concerning the seating arrangement.

  2. An Unforgettable Victory

    Drivers smoke tires in a burnout while workers blow-torch the track surface. All drivers roll their cars into the designed area when they are ready. When everything is ready-to-go, the top of the Christmas tree illuminates. In drag racing a "Christmas tree" is like a countdown board that has two columns of lights signaling racers to set off.
