What is it Like to Save a Life? This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


A check-in list
A questionnaire
A class period missed
A long wait
Ashort physical
A gentle touch to check for a pulse
Asqueeze of a band around your arm
A quick prick of thefinger
A drop of blood collected
A look of acceptancefrom the nurse
A lawn chair
A special rest for yourarm
A cool ice pack under your neck
A tight rubberband
A nurse with long, brown hair
A slight hint of redaccents her lips
A search for a good vein
A cleaning of the skin
A stab of a hollow needle
A faint pinch ofpain
A long tube that leads away
A flow of blood towardyour bag
A bag fills until it can't take anymore
Aslight feeling of lightheadedness
A gift of life for threepeople
A cup of juice
A bag of cookies
A walk back toyour class
You saved a life today
