Write a story about an event that changed a person's life

 

Once of the things about Aaron was that he could never sit still. He was young and full of life, always running around doing things and being busy. Never did he suspect that one day all these things would end.

Aaron's school life was a productive one. As he was blessed with a strong and healthy body, he excelled in sports and games. His forte was the short sprints. He was fast and one of the best in the state. In studies he was no laggard either. He performed well enough in his studies to secure a place in a university.

Life in the university was one big round of fun and studies. The three years there earned him a Bachelor of Arts degree. On graduation he landed a lucrative job in an international company. Life was certainly good to Aaron, or so it seemed.

Three months after beginning his career, he bought a car. It was a second-hand car that had been modified for speed. The car fitted Aaron's personality well. It was fast. he drive it at breakneck speeds along the expressways, risking his life and the lives of other road users. He imagined that he was the best driver around and he was immune to accidents.

One day he overtook a tanker but got too close to it. The rear end of his car touched the tanker and his car was sent somersaulting into the crash barrier in the middle of the expressway. Aaron's car was a complete wreck but miraculously he survived the horrendous accident.

They took him to hospital where the doctors treated him for cuts and bruises. There was one thing they could do nothing about. His spine was broken and he was paralysed from the chest down.

The accident marked a major turning point in Aaron's life. From then on he could no longer run around as he pleased. He had to spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair. He had to sit still whether he liked it or not.

The first three months of his new enforced living was the hardest to bear. He sank to the depths of depression. Everything has changed. He lost his job, his car and the life that he was used to. He ahd to face up to reality and adjust his life accordingly. It was not going to be easy but he had no choice. He had to get out of his self-pity and take whatever action to make his life worth living again.
