As I looked up to the sky my tears came down as my Grandma had just past away. It was a very sad lost for my family as she was one of our closest member, It all started like this. I was just in year 3 as my mother picked me up from school in deep tears, I asked her “ What Happened? she said “ I'll explain later” then as we arrived home there we a lot of family over, I was really confused.  As I got closer my mother said” Grandma died today” and I immediately  bursted into tears, shortly after the ambulance arrived  they took my Grandma  into the van. This is when I had a dramatic scene with the ambulance driver, I started punching the ambulance man screaming “ Help Her, Help Her” I said these exact words repeatedly. Eventually they had to leave but I wouldn't give up on her without a fight so I jumped into the van and I wouldn't get out, I could see the frustration on my mothers face as she was calling me to come.  

At one point I had to let her go I stopped everything and there was something in my head saying “ She will be in a better place” so then I hopped out of the van and walked away from everyone, On that very day I was angry and sad. Sad because my nana wouldn't be there will us on the dinner table anymore , and angry because we couldn't help her while she was suffering this pain. I felt sorry for my parents and family who had to go through this sort of thing but now that Grandma is in a better place she would have wanted us to be happy and to carry on striving for our dreams.

Jesse Owens,Summary.

There are a lot of great Olympic athletes but somewhere along that line, was a standout athlete named Jesse Owens. Owen's had beaten all the odds and despite what Adolf Hitler had in mind Owen's still competed in the Berlin summer Olympics in 1936.

Jesse Owens was born James Cleveland Owens in Alabama 1913 , Out of 11 children Owen's was the seventh. As a child he was often really ill, Owen's being an energetic child on the playground was one day noticed by a man named Charles Riley, who later became his coach and the one man who changed Owen's life. Owens made his first splash in the athletic  world in 1935 as he set new world records for Long Jump. No athlete has ever been able to achieve this kind of victory Owens had made.

Owens attended the summer olympics in Berlin, amongst all the hatred around him  he still played to the best of his ability and won four consecutive gold medals.
