Six Years Ago…
To me, April 9
Why? Why did the world have to do this to me? Everything just … everything I knew just vanished before my eyes. Today was the day everything fell apart. It was a rainy day, I guess. Does rain bring bad luck or something? I have anger that I just… can’t control but I don’t know how to let it out. I can’t imagine that I would have the courage to be able to make it and write today’s journal. Today was a huge mess that all started with a stormy cloud of rain.
My family left today to go shopping at a mall. In the middle of our shopping trip, it rained. The forecast didn’t say it would rain so we didn’t bring any umbrellas. While we were waiting for the rain to stop, a well-known bad guy arrived where we were waiting. We hid in a nearby store, but the bad guy started heading towards us. In a desperate attempt to save me, my parents lead him away and acted as a decoy. I didn't know because they lied to me When I came out, my parents were both shot and killed. There was blood everywhere. The bad guy left after that. I don’t know what to do, and as of right now, I still don’t know what to do.
What will end up happening to me? Will I be able to survive? How will I make money? I don’t want to go to an orphanage.
Things don’t really work the ways you want. When a normal day turns into a disaster, can you say it was predictable? But if I survive this disaster, there’s one lesson I learned that I can’t afford to forget. It's motivating to write this, even though I just want to curl into a ball and cry my eyes out.
“Tomorrow is unforeseeable, so cherish the weather today.”
You must not forget this, not until the day you die.
