Rough Draft:

“This Day”
by Charday Laverty

Picture it…sicily 1946…it was the best of times, and it was the worst of times….this picture was taken the day before I left and joined the us army. I believe the day to be exact was june 23, 2009. I was laying on the bed trying to figure out what I had done. I was scared because I basically signed ma life away and there wasnt anything I cld do. I had to leavr my friends and family. At the time I was wondering if I had made a mistake.even with all my negative emotion there was still a part of me that was proud myself. I was going to serve my country and make millions of people happy. I was never goin to have to deal with my present day hardship I was going through at that time.
So although I was all over the place with my emotions I knew what I was doing was right and that I needed to do.
I love the army and even though I broke my hip it was the best decision of my life and I am so happy n grateful that I made that decision in my life




Note from Ms. Strauss to Ms. Laverty: “Love you.”
