Author Cindy Gritton,

This essay recounts a traumatic experience the author had in the eighth grade. The author tries to save a classmate from drowning during a physical education class, but the panicked classmate pulls her under the water, and both girls almost drown. Fortunately, they are rescued, but the experience causes her to reflect on the decision she had made to not take a lifeguard class the previous month. The author realizes that God had tried to prepare her for this day and uses this decision as an analogy for other decisions she has made in life. This essay was awarded third place in the BYU Studies 2015 personal essay contest.
