Narrative Entry #1: The day my Earth stood still

They always say tomorrow is never guaranteed and to live each day to the fullest. Well those statements gave me new meaning and opened my bright hazel eyes on March 5, 2002. That is the day my world turned upside down and it still feels like it just happened yesterday. 14 years ago my mother took her last breath with my grandmother, my aunt, and myself, by her side. I still remember every smell, every noise, every conversation, and person. Live everyday like it’s your last because you really are NEVER guaranteed another second!
