    "Pop! Pop!...Smack!" From the vault table to the mat in less than a second. Tears began to well up in my eyes as I sat on the chalky, eight inch mat.

Something was on top of him, and he violently pushed it away. His head broke through the surface of the water, and he struggled for breath but coughed up water instead.

    Moments The lovely warm sun provides a comfortable essence on my pale skin and beams on my white-blond hair. I glance around at the typical atmosphere of my school at lunchtime; children bustling about scurrying past me, and balls flying in the air. I have only been at this school for a few weeks and now I’m already used to the chaos during this time of day.

    Born with a cleft lip. Numerous surgeries. A few years ago as I was falling asleep I remembered what I believe to be my first memory-- both arms restrained miles away from the stitches on my tortuously itching face. Is that trauma? The next several years were punctuated with appointments and surgeries with various physicians who fixed my face. At risk of wading into the poetic, the dreams to become a physician and practice medicine grew from the admiration I had for the doctors who took care of…
