Now in our town, where the volunteers supplement a highly skilled career staff, you have to get to the fire scene pretty early to get in on any action. I remember my first fire. I was the second volunteer on the scene, so there was a pretty good chance I was going to get in. But still it was a real footrace against the other volunteers to get to the captain in charge to find out what…

    A Mosquito Nearly Ended My Life

    “What?Where Am I?” My voice was weak, my throat felt bone dry and my head was spinning. I heard a voice, a stranger say “He’s coming around!” I felt terrible. Confused as if I was waking from a long nightmare. Opening my eyes was painful, the bright lights in the room hit my brain like bee stings. Everything was blurred at first, then I began to focus. There was my mom and dad leaning over me. They were crying..! I looked down to see my brother and sister, each holding one of my hands. I looked down to see my brother and sister, each holding one of my hands. I…

    Celebrities Who Got Teenagers Pregnant

    Even though MTV’s hit show Teen Mom has effectively made celebrities out of everyday kids who played it fast and loose with birth control, there are plenty of already famous folk who’ve sent some seriously young women to the delivery room.

Whatever the case may be, these are the celebs who had teenage baby mamas – and the inevitable drama that came free of charge. Luc Besson Film director Luc Besson is perhaps best known for the zany ’90s sci-fi romp, The Fifth Element. “And, uh, this is?” “Leeloo Dallas multi-pass.” “Yeah, multi-pass.…

    I Stole My Sister’s Baby Because She Is A Horrible Mother

    Hi everyone, my name is Hayley, I’m 16 years old. I have to confess, I committed a crime, and I got away with it. But I don’t have a guilty conscience, because I did it to save a child’s life.

They help with household chores, school, and personal problems. In my case, everything was the exact opposite. Amanda is a great example of how you should not live. From the age of 16, she started hanging out with older guys, going to endless…
