A Significant Journey in My Life - Original Writing

As my family and I were returning from our short summer vacation in
the in the mysterious and magical island on Bermuda a very unexpected,
sad but true occasion occurred. After I had witnessed this occasion my
view on life has never been the same again.

The day we leaving to come back home from our travels abroad was one
of the hottest days I will probably encounter in my entire life. We
were in our taxi and travelling about 20mph because of all the
traffic, there was 5 people squeezed into a little car and the sun was
beaming down on us through the sunroof. All I wanted to do was get out
and run a cold hose all over my body, my whole was feeling sluggish
and tired due to the heat. We were driving along the edge of the

During that journey home I really thought about how difficult it must
be some people who must have it so much more worse then us. I know
that racism is a factor in the world nowadays, although it is only a
small minority of people that are racist. Ever since that journey home
I have seen the world in a different light.
