With Life Comes Beauty and Pain


Benjamin Parker was coming home from his job at the grocery store, when the tornado came. It picked his rusty, old truck up and flung the short brown hair, blue eyed, sixteen year old boy in to the air .It was two days before Ben was found under rubble. Ben was rushed to the hospital because he had suffered a concussion and minor brushings. Benjamin’s family mad a great commotion to find him because communication was limited due to the tornado. When Ben’s family found him, they had an act of concession when they knew he was at Lake View Hospital or the LVH. Benjamin felt that the consequence of the tornado was unfair to him because he could not walk, read, move his left hand, or speak fluently. Benjamin is now living with his wife, MaryAnn; he is all most back to normal, and very happy. The now twenty-six year old man is well prepared for the next tornado to show it’s ugly head.
