Sounds like your starter is bad. Sometimes you can thump the starter with a block of wood and get one more start out of it to take it to a repair shop. Stand back before cranking it up to start. If you're lucky you can drive it rather than tow it. Also, standard shift cars can be started by pushing it in 2nd or 3rd gear with the key on. Be careful and have fun.
