By Alejandro Tapia, Chicago, IL

My name is Baird. It all happend on the day of my 16th birthday. it started out as any regular day of my life i would wake up 7am take a shower and brush my teeth. After doing all of that i went downstairs and fell due to little brother Cole leaving his skateboard on the stairs. I fell and broke my ankle I was rushed to the hospital. While my mom notified everybody that was going to be in the hospital for 3 weeks everybody and even my friends decided to not visit me in the hospital. I spend the rest of the time i was there just thinking of all the fun i could be having with my friends but instead i got stuck in this dumb old boring hospital.On of my ankle being broken the doctor also told that because of this i have been suffering of to much stress. After I got released of the hospital every day that i would wake up i would be careful of were i would step and to make sure that my brother is sleeping.
