Georgia’s reflection on Nepal…..
I don’t know where my family are. I don’t know where I am. I don’t know what just happened. But I am alive. The earthquake destroyed everything, there is rubble everywhere there are thousands of people dead. I don’t know what to do. I’m hurt but I’m ok. Thats all that matters I’m ALIVE! My home has been destroyed my family were inside the house, I don’t know if they’re alive or dead. I hurt my leg but I need to help other people. I work at the hospital, well I worked at the hospital which is now a pile of bricks. I am only 22, I have a mum and a dad, I can’t find them. No, no focus help other people, children, elders help anyone don’t stand around doing nothing…HELP!
24 HOURS LATER
It’s over. I saved lives, but I still can’t find my parents. The next thing I know an army soldier approaches me, I take a deep breath…He told me that they found my parents bodies, I am silent. My parents are dead. My life is now changing completely I saved so many people and my parents are dead, the two people I care about, I will have to take care of myself now. I will help other people so they don’t end up like me alone, an orphan. But I guess the main thing is I’m alive, I am Alive!….
