HI, my name is Johnny, and this is my first page of my diary. I think I’m 9 years old, and I don’t know my last name either as I never knew my parent’s. The school I go to took me in and lets me attend for free. The school is now taking us somewhere tomorrow and I have no idea why. I have asked everyone why, but either they say they don’t know or they say to not worry about it. This is why I am starting this diary and bringing it on this Journey with me.
This situation is scaring me and aging me think that I did something wrong. August 2, 1942- Good Morning diary, Today is the day we leave. It is 6:00 AM and it is a very dreary day. The sky is gray, thunder and lightning are cracking, its humid, and it is pouring rain. On top of that there are a lot of people scurry every getting our plane ready. I still have not figured out why we are leaving. I see other kids with there families and mothers and fathers crying, and I have no idea why.
There are loudspeakers blaring instructions for the people working, but I don’t understand it ever the crying, yelling, thunder, lightning, and the heavy rain. I am worried about what is going to happen soon. Oh, I need to leave now. I will write again after the plane ride to where ever we are going. August 2, 1942- Something has gone terribly wrong. I heard a crash, and then woke up on an Island. I have no idea what time it is. There are a bunch of my classmates, but I don’t actually know any of them.
I’m now very scared because there was a loud sound and all the kids are moving towards, so I have to go to not get left behind. We have meet up with other kids now so I feel safe from a big snake I saw. The others don’t believe me, but I swear. I am Just going to keep quiet because they don’t really accept the idea. It is their problem, not mine. I am going to be the one who survives because they won’t know it is coming. I am worried about our future as group, as Jack is starting to be a little crazy. We also decided to make Ralph the leader instead of Jack, which may also contribute.
