An emergency ! Help !
 
An emergency is a serious situation that happens suddenly and unexpectedly and needs immediate action to avoid harmful results. To me, an emergency can be as serious as an injury, or as trivial as a pimple on my face before an important date. Once, I was so distraught over a party dress that had shrunk after washing, my sisters had to step into the picture to calm me and persuade me to alter it to save it. What a big fuss over a little thing !

In any emergency, my eldest sister is always a good source of assistance and advice. She is calm and decisive, which is important in any emergency I remember once when my father suffered a mild heart attack. While the rest of us were in a panic and too busy crying to know what to do, she took control of the situation, called for the ambulance, and then proceeded to talk to my father continuously to ensure that he did not fall into a coma. Had it not been for her, I cannot imagine how my father could have survived the ordeal as well as he did. Not when the rest of us just collapsed in fear. Hence, she will always be the right choice for me in any emergency.

My brother-in-law is also good at handling emergencies because he has a multitude of contacts whom he can appeal to for help. He knows many people from all walks of life that, whether it is a punctured tyre or simply buying a house, he never fails to deliver. Furthermore, he is always willing to help those in need. A good example of this was when our family car stalled in the middle of' a highway in the early hours of the morning. Without a clue as to what to do, we called him and he responded promptly. Within twenty minutes, our car was towed away and he was driving us back home. That is how efficient he is.

If I need someone with a cool head and intelligence, there is no one else I would approach but my good friend, Jason. He is always full of ideas on how to tackle problems that I have grown reliant on him whenever a situation arises that I cannot cope with. When we were in form Two, I had to complete a research project on the business of shares trading. But I was in a fix because the trading firms would not entertain a call from a fourteen-year-old. Jason came up with the idea of pretending to be an interested customer with lots of money to invest. His deep voice and confident articulation convinced the trader and we managed to get a first-hand account of trading.

Thus, I know that in times of emergency, I will have people to whom I can turn. But in truth, the best person to rely on is always yourself as you may not be able to find help all the time. Unless you learn how to handle problems on your own, you will never feel confident about meeting life head-on.
