As I stepped on to that British Airways flight to London, England I didn’t know this would turn out to be one on the most changing experiences of my life. It started like this after playing a soccer match with some friends at a local school, we began to look forward to what we were going to do tonight. So after we got home and took a bath, we called up a few friends and the plan for the night was chalked out, as we would go to some clubs and other night spots London is often associated with. Then after confirming were we were going to meet up, we got dressed up, and left to where we could catch a bus, which would take us to the train station, to meet the others. After we met up and boarded the train some people from the group started to talk about how the police would be out in full effect because it is a weekend night and since we were going to a rough part of the city, we should be careful. But in true fashion everyone just brushed it aside, not knowing what would happen tonight.
So after talking for about half an hour, we finally reached are stop, which after walking for a couple of minutes would arrive us at our destination. Then after getting past security who were a couple of my cousin’s friends, we started to dance and talk to the girls that were from around the area which we lived. It though got a little boring after a couple of hours, so a couple of us said lets go to the bar down the street because it was suppose to be a great place. Then suddenly as we were about to be leaving the club, some Pakistani guy throws something at one of my friends which starts a chain reaction, because Pakistani’s and Indians don’t usually get along in most situations. So since our group of fifteen was all Indian their was no hesitation as we started to throw objects and fight their group of about twenty people. They were getting hit left and right from all directions as some of their group had walked away since they didn’t know we would respond so quickly to their aggression.
The end our road that is life, is death and the second we begin to live, we begin to die. A rendition of death and the loss of a loved one is expressed in two different lights in Dylan Thomas Do not go gentle into that Good Night and Anne Sextons for Eleanor Boylan talking with God. Both express the fear and vulnerability of losing someone you thought should live forever Thomas message is an ...
This lasted for about fifteen minutes until we started hearing police sirens so we ran out and made a break for it as if we would get caught we would certainly have to go jail. Because the police were on the lookout for us, so we would jump the fences and cars in our way. Until we saw the light of a police helicopter from afar, and a bus about to pick some people up at a stop. So as we ducked into the double-decker bus and heard the sirens and lights going past us, we knew that we just got lucky since they went right by us and couldn’t get us now.
This was memorable event for me not only because it was in the local newspaper but also since it taught me of what kind of people I should be around and how to carry myself in a difficult situation that may arise in life.
