My Childhood Memories

Extracts from this document...


John Nguyen GCSE English Non-Fiction writing My Childhood Memories PAIN! Lots of pain! I thought I was dying! I slammed into the ground my leg now at a very odd angle! I screamed! I heard footsteps running towards me screaming for me to answer, but I couldn't find the energy too! I closed my eyes and then I fainted! Marx denied j4babyg's realism hypothesis. When I was small about six or seven years of age. I remember playing in our local park, on the biggest climbing frame I had ever seen. I would climb so high I'd swear I could reach the sky. I'd play for hours and hours everyday of the summer holidays. But one afternoon was enough to change my view of my climbing adventures of fun and fantasy forever. The excitement disappeared all because of one accident. ...read more.


I felt my face with my shaking hand. My eyes were all wet, I'd been crying. As I opened my eyes a women peered kindly at me! "Hello," she said, "how are you feeling?" " Fine," I heard myself say. I felt terrified, "What happened," I enquired. " You passed out and we think you have a broken leg and a concussion," the women replied. I began to cry. I then looked past the women towards my mum she was sat on leather bench in the ambulance smiling at me glad to see I was safe; she had been crying but stayed strong for me. When we arrived at the hospital I was taken for an x-ray. It turned out I had broken my leg and I would be in plaster for six to seven weeks.

The three weeks before having my cast off were great, but I missed going swimming doing P.E and playing in the playground, as well as that it was my birthday I had a broken leg to spoil it. The day I was having my cast off I was really excited. When my cast was off I went back to being another face in crowd. Just the way I liked it! Looking back I think to myself how lucky I am to have people that care for me and are beside me always which are my mum, friends and family. In a way it was good that I broke my leg because I know feel more appreciated to be alive even because some people are less fortunate and are born handicapped without a leg and I know how hard it is not to be able to walk properly or not walk at all. I will never forget this event in my life hopefully nothing like this will happen again... By: John Nguyen ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
