This wall stops me from ever seeing my family again, because it pretty much splits Los Banos right in half. Why is this happening? Along the wall are guards with guns ready in there hands.

Brianna Harden English Period 2 October 27, 2009 Thursday, October 22, 2009 6:30 a.m It seemed like a normal day, nothing out of the ordinary. Although, I did wake up feeling a bit sick, so I took a few more minutes then usual in the shower. I don't know why, but my head was pounding with every step taken. Slowly and oh so gently I got out the shower with my head feeling a little better. I got dressed, nothing fancy, just sweats and a sweatshirt. My mom yelled, "Bri are you ready?" Ughhhh, I really didn't want to go to school today. Something about today just seemed a little off. It was colder then usual, a light breeze that sends a shiver down your spine filled the air. I hate the cold! No other words can describe how I feel. I looked out of my window and saw my mom already in the car waiting for me, so I rushed downstairs, got my backpack, water polo bag, and five cereal bars. The second I walked outside, it started to rain. In a way, I was shocked because it hasn't rained in forever! This wasn't just a sprinkle of rain here and little there, but actual hailing. Pretty crazy if you ask me! Thursday, October 22, 2009 6:00 p.m. Something's wrong.....something is very wrong! Everyone is freaking out! We are literally trapped inside this little seclusion of Los Banos. ...read more.


"Ummmm how come you didn't cook these?" I pointed to the cup of noodles in question. But then she explained to me that we no longer have electricity, gas, or water. But since it has been raining non-stop water hasn't been a problem. She also told me that we have no source of connection with the outside world. She going on and on about how the food is being distributed equally throughout everyone, but everyone is being selfish and not thinking, so they're taking it all for themselves. She was blurting out all this information but it made no sense to me. Why and how is the happening? Mabel was still talking but I kind of just shut her out for a second. So many things are going through my head it just makes it so hard to concentrate. I got up out of bed and walked outside to see what was really happening. Friday, October 30, 2009 9:30 p.m So many things have changed in such little time. I haven't seen or heard from my family in eight days. I feel like a prisoner trapped in the hellhole for life. Honestly, I don't know what to do anymore. Food is very scarce right now. These people that think they are in charge distribute the food to everyone individually. Nobody knows what to do! ...read more.


If I was going to do this, I have to go now. Weakly I crept slowly toward the sleeping guard, trying to be as stealthy as possible. I was in less then 2 feet of the wall. I jumped and was able to get a good grip on the wall. It was easy to get a good grip because there were vines growing all along the wall. I slipped over and over again, but I was still making progress. I was almost there. I was almost free. Would I make it? Thursday, November 4, 2009 2:17 a.m. All I could remember was the wind getting knocked out of me. Pain filled my whole body, especially on my side. I lay there clearly aware that this would be the end for me. My hand covered with my blood, but quickly being washed away because of the rain. Looking up at the sky, I kind of started to see a ray of sunlight. Slowly the clouds start to open up letting the shine through little by little. The rain stopped. I felt the heat of the sun feel my face, which was something I haven't felt in a long time. My head and vision was so clear that I felt way more alive then I ever did. Why? I don't know. But lying there, slowly departing, gave me the peace that I have been yearning for since the beginning of this disaster. ...read more.
