I was five years old and it was in summer. This moment just sparked everything with me. It was seeing a open dead body for the first time.
I was following my uncle and he asked me if i wanted to come with him in the other room. So i went with him i walked in there was like 4 or 5 bodies in there and he walked to the far table and lifted the sheets off a man. Then following that he cut in the side of his neck drained the blood from there grabbed 2 pink bottles poured them into the machine and started to embalm.
Seeing the man was like a open animal. i felt like i was in a horror movie just i was the bad guy with no emotion and no fear. i was so young it was all flabbergasting to me at the moment.
I had a thousand different things going through my mind at the time. for something that happened so long ago i remember it like it was yesterday. i was just felt blank and zeroed in on all that was happening. it didn't really stink it was just a different smell. i was listening to somebody's blood being pumped out their body.
I believe that moment broke me in. Cause i used to just think it was people sleeping in weird beds, did not really know what all was going on. it still makes me curious to every detail that i would have to learn in college but its definitely a career i want to pursue. it was for the better for me cause i see myself in a superior position.
From when i was 5 years old made me what i am today exuberant, ambitious, and adaptable.
