This storyboard does not have a description.
Soon, all of the shows were released to go to a workshop as the judges made their decisions on awards. We all headed to a relaxing finger painting workshop.
It was finally time for awards, and in order to move on to the State competition, we had to place in one of the top three slots.
Third place, and moving on to state, Carmel High School's Girls Like That!
With the incredible win and advancment under our belt, we headed home giddy and energized.
Guys? We're going to State!
We were 10 minutes away from home when it happened. There was black ice on Highway 31 in Westfield, and little did we know how bad the roads were. I was asleep when all of a sudden, I was pushed into the person sitting next to me, knocked on the floor, and banged around on the bus floor. The front of the bus was shattered when we ran into the median of the highway. There was a moment of total silence, and I truly thought that I was dead. It didn't make sense. I always feared death because I didn't want to endure the pain or struggle that would come with it, but I felt no pain. I didn't feel anything. I knew that if I was alive, we needed to get everyone to safety.
Someone broke the silence in the bus, and we hustled off the bus to try and get to safety. A man came over and told us to get to the side of the road so we wouldn't get hit by a car. With that, we ran to the other side of the road and comforted eachother as we were stranded in the freezing cold and snow.
Is everyone okay?!
Is my nose bruised or bleeding?
I lost my shoe on the bus!
That night, I became very close to the people in that show. I also learned that I'm very lucky in many ways. For one, I'm lucky to be alive. We could have crashed harder, and we could have lost people. We're all lucky that we only came out of the crash with a few bruises and a concussion. I'm lucky to have been surrounded by such caring people, that we all took care of eachother and comforted one another. Until that night, I never expected to ever be in a crash. I never expected to be so close to death at such a young age, and I certainly never expected this event to affect me as much as it has. Through this experience, I've learned how important life and the people you spend your life around are. It's crazy that it can take a near death experience to really appreciate the things you have.
