The Day My Life Changed

March, 12th. 2012. The day my life changed... forever!
All because of one stupid, drunk driver, the life of myself and my sister will never be the same again. We are destined for a life of care home after care home. A life in which we will never be able to hug our parents again.


1. The Destroyer of Life


Here I am. In an office with complete stranger. Complete strangers who will decide my future; where I will live, and who will take care of me. Everything is going to change; my family, my friends, my school, my house... my life!

Why was I here? Why was this happening? It is all down to Mr Daniel Smith- a.k.a. The Grim Reaper, The Living Devil, The Destroyer of Life! He is the reason that my life has turned upside down.

It all happened two months ago- on March, 12th. 2012. Myself, my sister and our Mum and Dad were going on a picnic- it was meant to be a fun family day out but it all tragically ended in disaster. We were in our car and Daniel's car was speeding towards us. It was on the wrong side of the road. Speeding at 79 miles per hour in a 30mph zone. He was drunk.

I can't say what happened next without crying. The car was a wreck! It looked like it had been crushed! My sister was screaming at Mum and Dad saying, “Wake up, please wake up!” Over and over again, the urgency building up in her voice but her hoarse voice was barely a whisper. Our efforts to wake our parents were in vain- they were pronounced dead at the scene, died on impact. She wanted them to wake up but they never did.

Now my younger sister and I are here. They are deciding which care home we will go to, which school we will attend. They are deciding our life!

Our life is hell! It has been broken into a million pieces but all Daniel has to deal with is a three year prison sentence and a measly fine. Which is nothing compared to us, nothing compared to our life now. He didn't think about the consequences. He didn't think about the repercussions of his actions and now he has wrecked two peoples life’s and destroyed a whole family!
