Love and Mammaw

The day I was old enough to know about my grandmother’s death, I believe I was about ten years old. I had just turned ten in September, and it was now October. I remember waking up to hear my mama crying in the bathroom. Naturally being curious, I asked what was wrong, and she told me that Mammaw, my grandmother, had been dead for six years that day. I hugged her and told her everything would be okay. Before that day, I had known that my Mammaw died with cancer when I was little, but this time it hit me differently. Maybe it was just the fact of being older and more understanding, I don’t know. That day I cried so much. I cried by myself, and I cried with my mama. I remember my mama telling me I should always love everybody as Jesus would no matter what they do. I was also told that you don’t know peoples’ stories, so don’t judge them before knowing that story. For some reason this day was very special to me, and it’s still very memorable. This is the day I learned so much about life, even though I was so young.

A Lie Worth Learning

Learning to me is very important. I have learned a lot of things in my life, but I have learned a very important thing over all. A few months ago, one of my friends was lying about almost everything that came out of her mouth. It made me sad that she chose to lie, and I hoped that she would stop lying. I taught myself to trust people. You need to trust people in our society because you never know when a person might stab you in the back. If you go on a rollercoaster, you have to trust the people running it and assume it is safe. Or when you’re in an airplane and you start to take off, you have to trust the pilot to make sure you get on the ground safely. People trust each other to an extent. Everyone has different learning environments also. People learn by listening to others and interacting with them. I personally learn visually and I have to listen to focus on my homework assignments in school. My learning environment is that I have to be listening to something or sometimes my house has to be dead quiet in order for me
