The Unforgettable Day By This day promised to be fun and exciting, but little did I know the events of Thursday June 28 2001, would forever change my life. This is how it all started.Oh my Gosh! I had over slept and my friend, Jamie, was at the door knocking. We were supposed to go to Six Flags for my first time. I got up to let her in and hurried around to get ready. As a usual early morning tradition, I headed straight for the coffee pot, and I realized the coffee was still hot. Mom must have had a cup of coffee when she came in that morning.

Jamie went outside to talk to the sheriff and I waited with such anticipation that I broke into a cold sweat. I heard the door open and those seconds felt like an eternity. Jamie walked through my mother's door with such a look on her face that it sent chills through out my body.
