The bell RINGS, I grab my bag, and head for the DOOR.
As I walked out the door, I noticed SOMETHING going on down the HALLWAY.
I couldn’t SEE what was going on since it was so CROWDED.
I tried to go LEFT and I tried to go RIGHT but it was hard to go either WAY since SOME were RUNNING this WAY while others were RUNNING that WAY.
As soon as I heard gun shots I knew EXACTLY what was going on.
I looked to SEE who was shooting and it happened to be one of my classmates.
He was shooting as if he was at WAR?? But at WAR with WHO??? he was the ONLY one with a GUN!!
Just when I THOUGHT I would get AWAY I STUMBLED over one of my FRIENDS who tripped trying to get AWAY.
The shots got LOUDER and LOUDER meaning only ONE thing. Meaning the shooter was getting closer and closer.
I tried to PROTECT my FRIEND from getting HURT but everything happened so FAST we BOTH got shot.
I held her for as LONG as I COULD, trying to keep her from dying but she didn’t make it.
At that POINT, I was in shock and didn’t know what to do so I LAID there with my EYES closed PRETENDING to be dead.
Once the gun shots faded away there was a long MOMENT of SILENCE.
I’m not quite sure what happened after that.
I must have passed out BECAUSE when I woke up I was in so much pain.
After what seemed like FOREVER I finally realized I was still at school.
Apparently I wasn’t the only one who had been shot but I was the ONLY one ALIVE.
I don’t remember that many getting shot but then again there were so many shots fired I lost count.
The SILENCE scared me to BELIEVE I was slowly dying.
Who KNOWS maybe I was or maybe I wasn’t.
As I laid there WAITING for someone to RESCUE me, I prayed to GOD. I prayed to live ANOTHER day BUT if it was TIME for ME to go that I went in PEACE and in PEACE is how I went.

Valentine’s Day is a day of LOVE but for Florida it was a day of pain and sorrow.
On February 14, 2018 NiKolas Cruz walked into a high school and started shooting leaving 17 dead.
This is not the FIRST school shooting but I pray it will be the LAST.
I hope a tragedy like this will change THINGS forever BUT if it DON’T I don’t KNOW what WILL.
if you would join me for a moment. . . a moment of SILENCE in memory of those who lost their lives and for the families and friends who lost a loved one in this tragedy
