I believe that there is one special person for everyone. In my case, the special person is my best friend. It was my freshman year of high school. Like every fifteen-year old girl, I had various problems. One of the bigger problems was between this girl and me. We had been friends, but had a fight, and stopped talking. In the middle of the fight, I began to develop a friendship with another girl. We became extremely close and eventually, we reached the best friend level. This all happened during the second semester of ninth grade. Over the summer, we did almost everything together. I went with her and her family to Hatteras Island and it was the best time ever. When we came home, and returned to school, our bond was still strong.

I believe how a person acts in a crisis shows who they really are. My grandmother showed me this when my grandfather died. My grandparents had been married for over fifty years when my grandfather suffered the stroke that killed him. Ever since that day I have know exactly what kind of person my grandmother is.

How you act in a crisis shows who you really are. It is easy to be nice and friendly in good and stress-free times. Putting on a smile does not take much. But, when faced with a struggle or crisis, the layer of personality that one shows on a normal day-to-day basis washes away and a person’s true colors show.

I believe that how you act in a crisis shows what kind of person you really are. In any crisis a person has a short time to react to the situation. A person must choose what they think is right or what will help them and keep them out of harms way. The decision that person makes defines who they are and where their morals stand.

Everything happens for a reason. You meet the people you meet for a reason. You experience the things you do for a reason. You achieve the things you do for a reason, and the things you don’t achieve also have a reason behind them.
