Part of Journal taken from Deveint Art, I thought this would be worth utting here as well:
Eh ya to begin things off, I did have a normal routine this morning before heading off to the Cancer walk today. Walked 5Km and donated some money towards the effort of finding a cure. However, I did find out something I never expected.
One of my team mates made a bad mistake and it almost cost him his life. He and four others went to a party over the weekend and got themselves drunk. The one though that I mention now, he got himself drunk to the point where he passed out. He was rushed to the hospital last night and as far as I know, his life signs were low and he was in a coma. He had his stomach pumped but he didn't wake up yet. More then likely he is either awake or still in a coma. :(Drinking without control at all is very bad. Well drinking alcohol is bad in general but he also did this a week before a swim meet so this means we made be down a few members cause of the mistake they made. I can only pray now that my team mate makes it out of the hospital alive and nit in a coma still. :(
If I hear good news I'll edit this journal. If not then I plan on just doing a new one.
Edit: Well found out that he is still in a comma and that right now the incident is being investigated as possible hazing. This isn't good at all. I only know is that the future is uncertain at this point even with this season itself. I fear one side and hope for the opposite. Ironically the kid that ended up in the hospital, he is one of the guys that would swim in the same lane as me and I was just getting to know him better to. Nice guy and all, but this... I can't turn away from. To hurtful to and it hurts knowing he is in a coma.
Edit #2: well he's out of a coma and is right now not in any shape to be doing anything. It's unknown what will the conclusion to this incident till tomorrow morning at 7 est. I had to give up 4.75 hours of work to be able to go to this mandatory meeting where there is no excuse not to be there. There I'll probably find out everything which happened on that Friday night. I am atm not just ticked at the guys that pulled this junk on Friday but also relieved that one of the team mates are ok. I have some dough he may still be himself but it seems he has been given a second chance now. Hopefully some of those guys who were there that night and other people learn from this.
I will do one more final edit on all this tomorrow. As of right now, I'm still to emotional about all this. I swear my coach was going to break out on tears this morning. As of right now, he's stuck helping with finding out what happened.
Quote on Alcohol:
"When you drink, you not only hurt your body, you hurt all those around you. You will not only ruin the body you were given at birth but also the life in which you live in day in and day out." - unanimous
(sorry that I didn't take the edits out but it just seemed not worth it.)
