Our teacher Pilar told us to write a news report on Tsunami of the movie “The Impossible”. Then we had to write as if we were one of the vitims of this tsunami. Here is the news report:

Writing as a witness

December 26th of 2004 6:35 PM

Dear diary,

      today really bad things happened here on Thailand, a big tsunami came and destroyed everything. Me and my brother can’t find mom or dad I have hope that we will find them soon, very soon. Now my bigger brother went to look for help, because we are hurt, I can’t walk because a big piece of wood hit my right leg, and my brother Sam can’t move his left arm, we both believe that he has broke his arm.

If someone founds this please go to the hospital near the “Easy” supermarket because we are going there when Sam comes back if he finds someone. My name is Han, I tell you this if for some reason I loose my diary.


Well, this was my day which I think I will never get out of my mind…
