That Friday… …I took the bus to go to school, like every morning. It was a rainy day and the streets were very wet. It was a normal journey,
horrible accident, a lot of people were hurt and others were dead. I really don’t remember a lot about the accident because it happened really fast. The only thing that I can remember is that when I opened my eyes, I was at the hospital. I needed an operation; it was a difficult operation because it took many hours. I woke up after the operation and looked in the mirror of my room. I was scared because I didn’t know what the doctors had done to me, and I realized that I didn’t have my left arm. I was shocked and I started crying, I didn’t know how to live without an arm because I do fencing. Now I have a prosthesis and I can do my favourite sport normally.

When Everything Was Fine By Maite and Franco (J5me)
It was a nice day, I woke up feeling very happy, and I saw it was a beautiful day to go to the park. So I called my best friend Susy, and she accepted to go to the park. I picked her up. We went to Saavedraâ€™s park, we ate food and we had a very nice day. We spent the day playing volleyball and watching birds, Susy loves them. When it got dark, we put all our things in the car, and I left her at her home. When it was difficult to see, I started to drive more slowly, but I didnâ€™t see the car, so I crashed it. That was the last thing that I remember. I woke up after the operation and I looked in the mirror. I was horrified.

The Operation By Valentino (J5me)
I woke up after the operation and looked in the mirror. It was horrible. I couldn’t recognize myself.
remembered how I had ended up there. In 2003, I went on holiday with my family to Libya. It was supposed to be our best trip
perfect. The hotel was the biggest and the most popular one. Its food was delicious; I really loved it. Every night there was a party in the hotel. Every afternoon we were at the beach. We went there by car because it wasn’t close to the hotel. One day we overslept and we had to do everything faster than we were used to. We were arriving at the beach and, suddenly, a very drunk driver crashed into the front of our car. Everything turned into darkness. I wasn’t conscious, but probably somebody called the cops and the ambulance. The next thing that I remembered was being at the hospital and the doctors telling me that they had to operate on my chest.
