my mom used to say that i was born to swim. but the truth is that i didn’t know how to swim until the last year of my primary school!
mom always said that i could swim in the basin when i was only two months old. i was surprised at the amazing fact. if this was true, then why was i afraid of water? i went to swim every summer, but i didn’t make a little progress. i was worried and blamed myself several times. when i watched people swimming freely, how i wished i had learnt to swim!
the story of how i learnt to swim is dramatic. one hot summer afternoon, my father and i went to the swimming pool to swim. while my father was changing his clothes, i was roaming along the bank of the pool. suddenly i heard a voice, “look out!” and then came a big noise and beautiful splashes. just when i was admiring the swimmer’s skills, i slipped into the pool! i was so afraid that i shouted at once! but the water kept coming towards me and i drank a lot of it. i was moving upside down and trying to reach the bank. i was struggling very hard to keep my head above the water.
a minute was like a hundred years to me. to my surprise, i was able to keep the style! just then, my father, saw me and he seemed to be shocked. he then said, “calm down, just wave your arms and legs like this. right!” and i got it! i finally learnt to swim! you can’t imagine how happy i was and i wanted to jump for joy!
from this unforgettable eperience i learnt that one’s power is unlimited. sometimes you could show that power in an emergency. if you believe that, you will discover the power lying within yourself and achieve your goals. and one has to stay calm when it’s dangerous. to calm down helps you to think clearly and make the best decision for you. that’s what i have learnt from the eperience.
One day on my way to school,I ran across a traffic accident,in which a girl was seriously injured by a motorcycle.I rushed to her rescue instinctively.I lifted her in my arms and hailed a taxi,which took us quickly to a nearby hospital.After emergency treatment,the girl came to.I felt at ease when I knew that she had only suffered from minor bone fractures and would recover in a couple of weeks.I left the hospital without giving my name,but my heart was full of joy and peace.Not until then did I understand the meaning of the proverb:"Helping others is the source of happiness."This may be the most unforgettable experience of my life.
An Unforgettable Experience Everyone has some unforgettable experiences. Last term my leg was badly hurt in a football match, and I had to stay in bed for two weeks. While I was worrying about school work at home, my classmate Tom came to help me. He told me what the teacher taught in class, and helped me a lot with my math problems. I was deeply moved because he kept teaching me until I returned to school.I was glad that I caught up with my classmates. From then on, we became best friends. I truly understood that a friend in need is a friend in deed.
I still remember that thing a few years later and feel afraid. It happened on my way to play. It was Sunday. I would like to Maggie’s home for a visit. However, when I passed a river, I saw three children at my age playing in the river. How happy they were! At that time, I had a idea that I would like to ask Maggie to go swimming with me in the river. Suddenly, something scare happened. One the three chiledren slipped and the other two wanted to help him. Unfortunately, all of them were struggling. I was shock. And then I rushed to the river bank immediately. However, I saw nothing but the peaceful river. I knew what happened. I was frightened. A few hours later I heard the death of them. I was so frightened and sad that I have never go never any river since then.
