Painful question to answer. When I was fourteen the car in which I was traveling crashed on a curving mountain road. The reason for the accident was excessive speed. There were five people in the car: my parents, and two younger sisters. As the car slid and spinned wildly upside down, I thought for sure we were going to plunge into the cliff siding the left side of the two lane road, and I knew that I was moments away from certain death. Miraculously we didn't plunge into the cliff, and nobody died. Ever since I've been afraid to travel in a car, especially on curving mountain roads and especially when someone other than myself is driving. There were also other situations that happened when I was fourteen that cause me to want to erase that whole year out of my life.
