    Left With A Scar

    When I was a kid I was riding my bike down the hill. I fell off the bike and rolled down the hill. What a fall that was! Now I'm left with this permanent scar on my knee.

    Left With A Scar

    I have a scar just above my right knee. I was cutting concrete with a big angle grinder with a masonry blade when it kicked back on me and left a gash down to the bone. I got 25 stitches in and around the wound.
