When I look over my “ The Loss Of My Sister’ essay I wrote it makes me proud of myself to know I was that strong to write about such a close topic to me and my family. I always wanted to write the story of my sister but I never had an opportunity to. I always kept quite about the situation I went through because I did not want the sorrow and pity from others. When ever I did tell someone that I have a dead sister, they would respond “ I don’t know what to say other than I'm sorry” it makes me feel awkward because I don’t know if I say thank you or it’s okay?

I know more then anything my dad worries that I will drop school just like she did and run off and get married. They worry the most about me losing it meaning me finally realizing that she’s gone and that I might do something I’ll regret. Mainly they worry about losing me in anyway.
Another thing that would be different is the way people treat my parents and I. People treat us like we are some aliens. By saying that meaning they assume that if they even mention my sisters name that my parents will start crying or get mad. That is the main thing that I hate more anything about this situation because death is normal. People will always ask,...
