Thesis: Safety is better than freedom
Experience the first trip with friends
Body Paragraph #1: I am the younger child of my family. So my family pampered me and they did not let me go outside alone. Someone would go with me wherever I went. One day I insisted on making a trip with my friends. My family did not permit me to go with my friends but I insisted on going. After much deliberation, my father permitted me to go on the trip with my friends.
Body Paragraph #2: I was very excited as this was the first trip of my life. I did a lot of shopping with friends to get there. For many days I wanted to spend a vacation in the mountains with my friends. This time my dream was about to come true. I was waiting for the day to come. Finally, the day came and I went out to spend my vacation with my friends. We felt like we got freedom from our day-to-day life. Nature was calling us. We got on the train at night and we spent the whole night talking. When morning came I could see mountains from inside the train and seeing that I became more excited.
Then I got off the train and reached the hotel and had breakfast. Then we all went out together to see the mountain. So far I have not had to do any work of my own but here I had to do my own thing. At first, there was a little problem but I managed it. After 2 days my friends planned some adventure and they wanted to go skydiving (Dominey P 21). I did not have much knowledge about sky diving but I also wanted to do it with friends. They fixed all the procedures for sky diving and we were very excited. Finally, the day came and I was a little bit scared but also excited.
With my all friends I jumped for sky diving and after some time, I felt something bad in my body. After some time our guide understood the problems and saved me. As I did not have much knowledge about that I became sick. I should have known it was a bad idea, but that didn’t stop me. If my family stayed with me then they did not allow me to do this. My ignorance could have brought my death. I was sick for 5 days and returned home with trauma in my mind.
Body Paragraph #3: After those days I understand that safety is better than freedom. We cannot do anything without any knowledge because that can be a danger for us. I should have known that ignorance can be a danger in my life but under the influence, I did this. Fortunately, I came back home safely but this incident could have put me in big danger. If I had spent the vacation safely and without any influence then I could have gathered good memories from the trip. That is why safety and awareness are better than unawareness and freedom.
