    My brother, while we were sleeping,

    almost killed me. He's a little boy and I was sleeping with him in a Motel because we were on a road trip and his elbow was on me neck, cutting the air out, but I took all my strength to push him over.... So close.

    When I was 10 years old I was riding my bike on

    the sidewalk, i was riding until the end of my street, I rode across a driveway as a car was pulling out, the car hit me and my bike, throwing me on the road, let's just say, only choose close family as your emergency contacts for life support. It could mean life or death.
