Living life to the fullest and achieving my dreams has always been the number one goal in my life, but one day I thought that my whole life was going to come to an end. I never knew that people could be so cruel. Who would want to bring fear to anyone? Considering where I live, one would have thought that this would not have been a shock. I guess I was too young to realize the harsh realities of the outside world.
I heard a scream, so I quickly ran to the front, and came to an abrupt halt before I could be seen by the masked man. “Give me all the money in the cash register, or I will blow your brains out.” he demanded. At this point in time, I was frozen in terror. I knew ...view middle of the document...
I was scared, humiliated, and depressed. You are probably thinking to yourself- what are you humiliated for? Well, the answer to that question is very obvious. My little sister had the courage and knowledge to do what I should have done. One would think that I would have called the police but at that point in time my life was the only thing on my mind, and I know that that sounds a little egocentric, but that was me at the time. Thinking back on this is really a strenuous task, but it really did alter the way I view the world today.
This encounter made me realize that everyone in the world is not the same and loyalty is rare. It revealed to me that there really are such things as sin, but looking back at all of the wrong things, I realized that there were some beneficial things to my learning gained. For example, there are some people who really do care for others, even if they do not know who they are. This world is not the safest place to live in. I learned that in this world everything is not as fair as I thought it was. It is a world of wonder and one has to wonder what is to come.
If one does good thing, then good things would follow. If one does horrible things, then horrible things will eventually come to pass. Although it seems as if when one does good things, bad things always seem to follow, keep your head up because a brighter day is on its way. I thought for a long time, that I was being punished for doing something wrong. Now, I know that it was God’s way of getting my attention. I am grateful for this experience because now I am a stronger and wiser person.
