Reading the story by Ashlyn Z., made me remember an experience of my own when I was little. The same thing happened to me when I was a little kid and only 6 years old, a car stopped in my drive way but didnt make any phone calls. My parents were out working, and my brother and I were home alone. I have always been the non-brave child and my brother with all the might. I can really relate to the fear that Ashlyn was feeling at that time because at my age at that moment, I was only thinking who could have been in that car at that moment and what was his or hers next step to take because I felt defenseless and worried. If I were in her situation I would have called the cops because by then I would already have been freaked out. When I read that she didn't call the cops I felt that she was a very brave girl, Unlike me. But going back I would never want anyone to go through the fear and curiosity that we felt at that moment in time.
