It’s crazy how life can change in an instant. The uncertainty of being dead or alive at any given moment can conflict with how you go about your life. As presented in the show A Thousand Ways to Die, there are a number of physical and chemical factors that can end our life. We learn from our mistakes and with past experiences we know the right and wrong paths to go towards. Not everyone receives the blessing of life every morning; however, we must cherish the moments we are able to live through, and pass on our life experiences to the generations to come. I can take you through the day of my ordinary life and show you how everything can be good, then take a drastic turn for the worst and still have positive effects. “Brave Dave” is my known alias around town. My real name is David Ned and I am a hard working father. Growing up, I was taught that hard work and dedication would always lead me to success. We never lived lavishly but my parents were always able to provide me and my siblings the bare necessities. The day was Friday, nothing new or out of the ordinary. I woke up around eight forty-five, took a shower, and proceeded to do everything hygienically possible. After cooking breakfast for my son, I dropped him off at school.

In a brief discussion, his teacher gave me a few tips on how to help his development at home and to make sure he does all of his homework. My second destination was the post office. My younger sister Anna had been going through some emotional issues after her divorce and I felt that sending her a few things to help ease her situation. Anna was not always so... ... middle of paper ... ...fe can go from normal to tragic in an instance. We incorporated David’s son into the story because Darius in a way reminded David of his troubled son and how trouble seemed to follow him wherever he went. We described the bank robbery scene from David’s memory that he discussed in the podcast because it was a traumatic experience for him. We added many references of David’s experience with his son because he had an eventful past with his son. David also said in the original podcast that if his son were to turn his life around that anyone that he had wronged or taken advantage of would hopefully give him a second chance. We further included the events that happened after the robbery to show how sincere Darius actually stood. He went one by one apologizing to the victims of his robbery. The genre of the story changed from a dramatic retelling to a story with a lesson.
