This evening I was playing the piano and I was memorizing what has happened through the years my wife,the war and also my childhood.

I am going to begin off with my lovely caring wife and all the memories we had together.I remember the time when we went on our honeymoon we went to rarotonga  we went scuba diving  and also  I Iiked the luxury massages, and went swimming .Those time were the funnest times .But sadly she passed away of a heart attack last year. That was a terrifying thing to see and to hear from the hospital.But I need to move on with my life even though I am going to pass away soon.Luckily I know that she is always going to be apart of my life.

Now I am thinking of when I was in the war with my little brother and we wore dark green pants with a dark green top with a first aid cross.But my brother tragically ran in front of a loaded gun and got shot I held his dead body in my arms as I hear him say to me
“Thank you so much and thank you for helping me in my life” I said
“Don't die now there is so much more to do in you life”.
But it was to late he died in my heartbroken arms.But I will always remember the wonderful times we had together when we were young kids.They were fun times we went to the the park and even went to the dairy together I remember the lollies there were only 5 cents.

The only thing I liked that I memorized was when I  was only little. For my birthday I got a ride on horse with a wheel at the back it was cool.I picked it up with pride and I started to ride it. I galloped everywhere and I even rid it under the furniture  . Every morning I was so excited to go on it because that was the only fun toy I had.Days past quickly when I was little so I only got to go on my toy for only a little bit every day.I traveled everywhere with my toy wherever we went I would take my ride on horse.My parents could tell that I really liked it.But it was time to let it go I give it to someone younger than me that actually needed it.

World Events for your writing
I’m sure you won’t have missed the events in Barcelona, Spain this week or the devastation caused by the mud slide in Sierre Leone and the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. The prompt this week uses the emotions that the media has shown us.

Latest prompt
As I said at the top of this page, the events around the world this week:

… as it came rushing towards us we…

My day is a disgrace, my life will be over.  I hear that there is a crazy, insane man driving around. I think to myself is he a wild animal? He is killing people, I am as scared as if I was getting kidnapped. He looks petrifying, I can't stand looking at him. His car skids on black oil. I’m panicking, my heart is pounding 100 mile per hour.

As his white colourless van bolted towards us we slammed our bodies against the orange brick wall.I hope he is sorry for doing this,I despise him.I fell downcast.
