Comments: I am a college bound senior on the verge of achieving many academic goals
When my cousin Tiffany died, I had never experienced death, or so I could remember. Her mother sent her to live with her grandmother in North Carolina because the city was getting increasingly dangerous and she felt she could recieve a better education. Tiffany came back to Boston every summer, but this time she was coming home to die. She was outside at around 8:00 just hanging out with the kids she had grew up with, but saw two months out the entire year. She was sitting on a mailbox with her legs cros sed, some older girls were playing jump rope. A car drove up to the edge of the sidewalk and without warning began shooting. As the bullets sprayed and grazed many, Tiffany was in a state of shock. She did not know what was going on, she did not even real ize she had been shot in the back until she had fallen to the ground. She didn't cry or scream, all she said was I don't want to die.She should not have had to.
