A warning just went out for us to take cover; a tornado is to touch down soon. Mama huddled all six of us in our tiny cellar, we were huddled there for about five minutes until the howling winds and the crashing of building stopped. I remember our house being moved across the street, and the only thing left was our kitchen.
We had no where to live and at this point we had very little money to buy a brand new house.we lived on the poorer side of Oklahoma city, where crimes happened every other night. We moved in with my aunt Betty until we can find a place of our own. About a month passed since the disaster, and daddy said we finally have enough money to move to New York City. I always dreamed of living there, and the only thing we had to do was gather our family and move.
We took an twelve hour drive to our new home and it wasn't the home I imagined. there was people running and the sound of guns going off. Our little three bed room apartment had dead rats and roaches every corner you turned. I told mama and papa i was going to take a walk because I wanted to soak in our new home, but really i was trying to escape throwing up from this disgusting home. As I walked down the street I felt like the center of attention, all eyes were on me as I proceed to the corner store. At this moment I knew my life was about to change.
