"Good night mom and dad; I\'ll see you in the morning, and I\'m really sorry." Tiffany said as she trudged up the stairs. It was just a couple days before Christmas, and ever since Tiffany and Megan had goten out of school for Christmas break, Megan had spent every night with her boyfriend, Derrick. "I always have to be home by 10:00 no matter what. It\'s not fair; I\'m 15 years old, I\'m not a child anymore and I think I can take care of myself. Just because Megan is seventeen she thinks she can do anything. Why are things so unfair," Tiffany thought to herself as she got ready for bed.
As she laid in bed that night so many thoughts went through her mind. "It didn\'t seem like I had as many gifts under the tree as Megan did tonight, Tiffany thought, "she gets to do everything, and I don\'t get to do anything, ever." Tiffany could not get any sleep that night because she could not stop thinking about how awful her life was. It seemed that she had nothing that she could call her own. As Tiffany dwelt on how her parents must love Megan more, her feelings of self-pity slowly turned into hatred for her sister.
Tiffany finally fell asleep. She had an awful dream that night. She had dreamt that it was Christmas morning. She was so excited as she jumped out of bed and ran downstairs excitedly, but when she reached the bottom of the stairs, her entire family was sitting in the kitchen crying. Her mom, dad, grandparents, and aunts and uncles were all sitting around the dining table crying. Tiffany also saw herself just sitting there. She was not crying; she seemed to be staring at something no one else could see. Tiffany tried to get her own attention, but failed. She didn\'t know what was wrong, and it seemed as if no one could even see her. In her dream, Tiffany started walking towards her mother when she suddenly felt someone shaking her.
Tiffany immediately bolted out of bed. Her dad was staring her straight in the face, and his eyes were filled with terror. "Dad, what are you doing? Do you realize what time it is?" Tiffany groggily said to him. Her father sat on Tiffany\'s bed and tried to explain that Megan had been in a horrible car accident.
Tiffany quickly got out of bed and put some clothes on. She could not see what she was putting on; all she could think about was getting to the hospital. When Tiffany and her dad arrived at the hospital, she saw her mom already in the waiting room. Tiffany could tell that she mom had been crying because her face was swollen and red. Tiffany had not cried the entire way to the hospital, but when she saw her mom and dad sitting in front of her sobbing, tears flowed uncontrollably.
Tiffany\'s mother explained to her that Megan and Derrick had been hit by a drunk driver, and Derrick had been flown to another hospital. Megan was in surgery, and the doctor did not know if she would make it. Tiffany\'s mother tried her best to tell her that as Megan and Derrick were going through a stop sign another car did not stop and hit them on the passengers side, Megan\'s side.
Tiffany sat with her parents in the waiting room for what seemed like forever, however, it was only three hours. Tiffany thought she was going to go crazy just sitting there. She wanted to know what was happening to Megan. She was ashamed of what she had thought that night, but all she wanted to do was tell Megan how much she loved her. She would never take her sister for granted again. "I love my sister, and I never wanted this to happen to her," Tiffany thought. Tiffany felt awful; her guilt had overcome her, and it made her so sick that she could not stand sitting next to her parents a moment longer. As she walked around the small, confining room she thought to herself, "What if I can never say I am

Teen ViolenceTeen Violence Teens are viloent, cold and unremorseful because their families neiborhoods and society are violent. Teens care so little about others because so little care has been shown them (MacDonald 1A). Many children today in society contain hate and bitterness, and because of this do they become a problem. Many argue that children become what they become because they make their own bed for themselves in life. I am in total disagreement with this theory. I stand by the fact that children

Nature vs NatureNature vs Nature Nature vs. Nurture Psychologists have often questioned whether personality traits are inherited, and therefore a result of genetics, or if they are caused by the environment, and are therefore made.

Nature versus nurture has been an on going argument for over a century and will carry on further. Scientists have bee

BasketballBasketball Basketball is a great game that is one of the most popular in America. In this sport you have to have good aim to shoot, good jumping skills to rebound, you have to be quick, and also have good ball handling skills. In a real game there are only five players on the court, referees, foul outs, and rules like no running with the ball, no fouling, out of bounds and no running over the other teams players on offense. I really enjoy playing this game and I practice a lot outside on my cour
