I am a 28-year-old nurse who has written many things, with many different styles starting back in high school. Writing has always been a passion of mine and I am finally getting the chance to try to chase my dream. I do not have formal writing experience but I did write for our church paper, and our DECA bulletin each month. I have written numerous powerful speeches and some very good contest winning short stories. Here is a sample of my work. If you can't take the heat, stay out of the sun! Look out your window and take in what you see. What do you see? Grass, trees, flowers the beautiful sun shining down bringing such life to everything? What you don't know, what you don't see-could **** you, literally! With record-breaking temperatures and rising, it's hard to tell that the hottest part of the day is between 10 and 2 because it seems so hot from sun up to sun down. That's when most people are out, but thats also when the sun is directly above us shining down on our skin at a 90° angle. With the month of July just ahead the high temperatures can fill almost unbearable. It's no surprise either! With the mass of the sun taking up 99.8% of the solar system, its average core temperature of a blistering 27,000,000°F, and the surface temperature of 10,000°F, it's a wonder that more people aren't cautious to the silent killer's wrath. The 8.4 minutes it takes UV rays to travel the 93million miles to earth is not quit long enough to decrease the powerful sun rays enough to be unharmful. A golden tan isn't all these tempting UV rays cause. Dehydration, heat exhaustion, heat stroke, severe sunburns, and serious long term eye damage are all unthought of effects from the warm rays beating down on us. Some people retreat to higher, cooler altitudes during times of such dry heat. But the fact is the higher up you go, the more intense the sun beams become. But beware, the sun isn't just a threat during the swealtering summer. The snow actually reflects and magnifies these harmful rays. Unprotected progressive exposure to the sun can put your eyes at serious risk for cateracts and macular degeneration. Sweating is your body's own defense against the heat. Your internal thermostat triggers your body to cool itself, but sometimes that just isnt enough. What happens when your body, made up of 75% H2O, excretes more water (through blood, urination, sweat, diarrhea, and vomiting) then you take in? Dehydration thats what. You can shed at least a pound of water in the form of sweat during a brisk walk. 4 million children reportedly die each year from diarrhea related dehydration alone. So just imagine how depleted your body and your childrens bodies must become during a vigorous outdoor activity. As you become dehydrated you may start to become very thirsty, urinate less, feel your heart pounding, become lightheaded, and even possibly faint. It is very important to take in an adequate amount of clear liquids such as water, broth, jello, popsicles, or even an electrolyte drink, before and especially after dehydration occurs. Untreated dehydration can cause much more severe, life-threatening effects such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke, possibly landing you in the hospital or even death in very serious cases. The body can go into shock from the overwhelming loss of this precious fluid. Vital organs begin to fail and the decreased blood flow due to the lack of fluid in the blood can lead to kidney failure or worse your body could shut down and slip into a coma. Oh wow, the sun can do all that!? Oh yes, and that's just part of it. 42% of people polled by the skin Cancer foundation reported to get sunburned at least once a year. Just one severe sunburn in childhood doubles the chances of developing melanoma later in life. The sun exposure believed to be related to melanoma is brief, intense exposure, blistering the skin, not years of tanning as many people believe. Of course sunburns aren't the only way of getting skin cancer, you are already at risk if you have a family history of melanoma and need to take extra precaution to protect yourself from the UV rays. SPF sunscreen, wearing a hat, SPF lip balm, sunglasses with UV protection, and covering skin that is the most exposed, are all easy ways to decrease your risk for sunburns and sunburn related melanoma. Not to mention the premature aging that your skin may suffer from sun abuse. Children, persons with chronic medical conditions, and the elderly are at highest risk for sun related illnesses. However, anyone can become an unknowing victim to the beautiful weather. From preventing dehydration to preventing skin cancer, there are lots of steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones. So do yourself a favor, next time the inviting rays of the sun starts calling to you like cheese on a mouse trap, be smart, protect yourself, and your children or just chill out. You never know. It could save your life.
