An incident I would like to forget

 

There are many incidents in our lives that make us happy or sad. I was recently the victim of a snatch thief. This is one incident that I cannot forget. It was an incident that changed my life forever.

It was a Saturday morning, like any other weekend and I was on the way to school for extra classes. I had to take the city bus to school. As I walked down the street from my house I noticed that the road was very crowded. Buses, cars, taxis, motorcyclists and pedestrians created a hustle and bustle that would easily unnerve anyone. I kept my cool as I walked down the pedestrian path towards the bus stop. My thoughts were however far away, as I was preoccupied with the mid-term exam that was just around the corner. Suddenly, like a bolt from the blue, a motorcyclist who was just passing beside me, tugged at my bag, which was dangling from my shoulder.

I spun around and reeled from the force of the moving vehicle. I felt a harsh pull. Within a split second I was sprawled on the pavement. I felt numb and everything around me became blur. I heard people shouting, but I was too dazed to talk and too shocked to even get up. I did not remember anything after that. When I regained consciousness. I was in the hospital and my legs and arms were bandaged. Yet I felt no sensation or pain. I was just too weak to even move.

'What happened ?' I kept asking myself. How could this have happened to me, I thought ? My parents, my sister and my brother were there and their grim faces told me that things were not right. The doctor finally broke the sad news to me. I was now paralyzed and would not be able to walk again. I was shocked and did not know what to say. there was a lump in my throat. The tears that rolled down from my eyes slowly wet my pillow.

I am now stronger but must learn to be more confident of myself. I have learnt to pray and hope that I will be able to move around in my wheelchair. It is one incident that has changed my life and I will never be able to forget.
