What do you think caused the accident? What is Peggy's sense of her relationship with Ken before the accident?

Paragraph – Choices

Tuesday, May 27, Choices. We make choices on an everyday basis, however, have you ever thought about what impact those decisions you make might possibly have? In "Choices" by Susan Kerslake we are introduced to Peggy, a young female and her "friend", Ken who asks her to go on a trip. During the trip an unfortunate event occurs which leaves Peggy possibly paralyzed below her hips and Ken with a concussion. Peggy left bewildered at the fact of his minor injuries and begins to question Ken's obligation towards her.


Choices often influence our everyday life, but have you ever thought about the small decisions that you make daily? What if one of those seemingly insignificant choices impacted your life forever? Peggy has been asked by her friend, Ken, to go out for the weekend on a trip. Susan Kerslake uses subtle hints and very specific wording to give the reader the impression that Peggy would rather stay home than go on the trip with Ken. Peggy mentions that the plans that Ken had for the weekend, what they would do together, is something that she could accomplish at home. One of those choices that I can relate to is texting while driving. In your mind, texting while you drive can seem like a small insignificant choice, but that one decision could cause you to lose your life.
