Some may be extraordinary events or moments while others may be ordinary situations that all over a sudden have a great impact on how you perceive life. About seven years ago, I almost lost both my brother, Raphael and my best friend Sonia. Call it double tragedy. This was one of the most devastating moments in my life, and I still remember the events of that fateful day, seven solid years after it happened, like it was just yesterday. My life was completely changed. It was that chilly January afternoon that my little brother, my best friend and I decided to take a trip to the beach to have our dry suit certification for under water ice diving after we completing a long tiresome but enjoyable training. Little did we know of the events that were later to unfold. We had everything ready, we went through preparations as usual and had our gear packed as we embarked on our trip. My uncle Joseph, who had been with us throughout our training sessions, had already gone ahead of us and was already at the beach waiting for us. Our parents had instructed him to take care of us while at the beach. At the beach there were about nine or ten other people who were also eager to get the event started. We teamed up with my uncle, who was working with the instructors in giving us all the information we needed to get started. We quickly changed in to our gears ready to dive in to the cold water. In pairs, we began jumping in to the water as the instructor and my uncle watched carefully. My turn came and I dived in with my brother. While in the water, Sonia left her partner and came to swim with my brother and I. We went deep to the level that we had been instructed. At this time, the air in our tanks was almost ending and we started swimming upwards looking for a way out for fresh air. I signaled my brother and Sonia to go first while I followed them up. When I reached the top, I did not see my brother and my friend, but since I was also gasping for air, I did not bother so much about them and since I had signaled them to go ahead, I assumed they had already reached the top and left the water. One of the instructors rushed to hold my hand as he pulled me out of the water. As I climbed out of the water, I was greeted with a warm broth and a blanket and a towel to wipe my face with by one of the instructors. My uncle approached me and asked me whether my little brother and Sonia were still in the water. I was taken aback because I had expected to find them out of the water. “They did not get out?” that was my response. AT this point I knew all was not well. I was completely filled with tension, fear and panic, just wondering how come they had not yet come to the surface. My uncle and one of the instructors jumped in to the water to look for them. I also wanted to join them in, but the other instructor warned me not to dive in because I was too weak at this point and it was also very risky for me to go back to the water. Everyone was instructed to leave the water as the search for Sonia and my brother intensified. We were all tensed. After about six or seven minutes, my uncle surfaced with Rafael, my brother and the other instructor surfaced with Sonia. They looked a little bit disoriented. As it turned out, my brother had suggested to Sonia that they stay in the water for a little longer since they were enjoying it. They moved out of my sight so as to deceive me that they had gone out.

As the discussion stresses it is especially surprising that a culture like they have in Germany would have a road that has so few rules. The Germans follow lots of driving rules on the autobahn so they can safely travel at high rates of speed, but it seems odd that a culture that loves rules and order would have no rules for speed on their highways.

According to the research findings, it can, therefore, be said that the introduction part of the essay may have been better if the researcher included a thesis statement. If given more time, the researcher would like to change the introduction a bit to include a thesis statement that brings out the main theme and focus of the essay.
