Not So Sweet 16.

It was a week after my 16th birthday when i got hit by car. i got his by a car while crossing the street. It wasn't my fault there were other cars stopped for me already but this guy didn't see him and he was speeding at around 65km/hr in a 50km/hr zone, and just totally got me.

I have to be honest and say it still haunts me. It's been almost 4 years since that accident and i'm still suffering from injuries. The accident left me with a broken neck, leg, pelvis and alot of bruises and it ended my basketball dreams i had for uni. Even though i am so grateful for being alive, everyday is struggle. I'm still so scared of crossing streets and when i'm driving i am so careful with crosswalk and i also have the guilty feeling on why i survived. Being hit by cars is pretty common and from the stories i hear all the time most of the people die from their injuries. it hurts me. it makes me mad. it makes sad.

i hope one day i can forgive the guy who hit me..
