When I was a child my mother and father always told me to grateful for the people in my life and the things I have because you never know when it can be taken away from you.

I will never forget that humbling experience that taught me the importance of family and how precious life itself truly is. Every day is a new day no matter the situation I learned to never give up on myself.

It was such a normal day yet a pivotal time in my life. I was 17 years old at the time and I took so much in my life for granted. I had everything I could possibly ask for, more than enough yet I still was not content with my life. Little did I know I was about to have a ground shaking experience that would teach me a valuable lesson in humility.

I remember being so tired after clocking out at work I had come home and passed out on top of a pile of clothes on my bed while listening to the tapping of raindrops falling against my window. There had been high-speed winds on and off and light rain on this warm day in March but I didn’t pay much attention to this stormy weather on this particular day. My family and I were oblivious to the catastrophes that were soon to take place.

Subsequently my father burst into my room waking me and telling me to come downstairs. I figured it was about 11:30 at the time and maybe we would be watching a movie together since my mom and little brother were waiting in the living room.

At this point the storm had picked up exponentially and the winds blew constant slinging hail against the walls of my house. As I sit down and we turn the TV on the power and the whole house goes out. Suddenly I hear a thunderous roar shaking the ground and swaying the whole house. Me and my entire family were fighting because this had been the Most chaotic Storm we had all experienced. Suddenly I can hear the glass windows on the second story of my house begin to break as the hail from the storm Shatter the windows of our home.

At this point we can all tell that its tornado has not only touchdown but was directly next to our house as we heard winds that sounded similar to a massive plane engine right outside of our house. At this point we are all in the fetal position hiding behind the couch And I remember hearing my mother tell my father to pray because we are feared that we would lose our life and this powerful storm. After about 30 seconds the tornado has seemed to vanish but it still wasn’t safe to go outside so I and my family ran into the closest bathroom and I’ll try to stay safe.

The aftermath of this tornado left people homeless and left my neighborhood any disastrous state for an entire year. Our home had to be completely rebuilt and remodeled because the storm completely removes the roof of our home and we lost almost everything. Dungaree building stages of our home we had to stay in multiple hotels, but none of us were heartbroken or sad because there were no casualties. This taught us those material things even such as a car or a home come and go.

In the end I learned how blessed I truly was and that home is where your heart and your family lies. Every day is a new day and new opportunity to make yourself better and in this situation I learned to never take my life for granted or if I lose everything, I still have myself and my love ones around me.
