    I Almost Drown In the Ocean

    I was about 9 years old. My family was spending the day at the ocean beach. My two cousins and I were by the water. When the waves would come up we would run from them. When they would go back into the ocean we would chase them. Back and forth, back and forth we ran. Then while...

    Why I Haven't Touched It Since

    When I was little I used to love to go swimming in the waves. I'd fearlessly tread out as far as my mom would let me and Bon up and down with the waves. I should have been more careful. But really so should my parents. I had no way of knowing what a rip tide was, and no one told...

    We, her sister, and her sister's then boyfriend and another guy went to the lake. We were all jumping off this rock into the water, and finally I was convinced to do it, although I don't know how to swim. Somehow, my mind was saying, how hard could it be? I bet I can do it. Don...
