Dear Diary

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Saturday, April 16, 2000 09:05 P.M. GMT Dear Diary, Apa's drinking has gotten out of control. Last night, I walked home from the library after a study session at Amanda's for final exams. I call for Uhmma when I walk inside the house. Instead, Apa was standing in the middle of the living with a hand on his hip, when he should be at his only remaining gardening job.

I started to pray to God to stop all the madness, but when I heard Uhmma shriek again I realized I needed to save her life before Apa killed her. I dialed the numbers nine one one and I heard a woman's voice at the other end saying hello. I told her to send help ASAP because my father was killing my mother. The police, fire department, and ambulance arrived a few moments later. ...read more.

Conclusion

Uhmma and I did not talk during the car ride home. Uhmma and I went down to the police station this morning to get Apa. She honked the car horn when she saw Apa walking out the police station.

I did it to save Uhmma's life, not to be mean. Uhmma is very worried too. She has been sitting by the telephone all day, and has been pacing. I just fear for the worst. Please God, find Apa and help him get back to normal. Sincerely, Young Ju ...read more.
