Massive Heart Attack Imagine smelling burnt rubber on a hot Mississippi evening, being stranded in the dark waiting for help to come, imagine never seeing your nineteenth birthday. The day my friends and
I almost died, my car had a flat tire, and I didn’t have any money. It was one of the scariest days of my life. I learned that in a matter of hours situations can go from good too bad.
The day started off real nice. My friends and I just finish playing a fierce NBA 2k tournament in the dorms of Jones Junior College. My friend name Keo got mad because he was losing most of the games. The other guys were making fun of him, so he suggested we play a real game of basketball to see
