Slice of Life #9 - Disasters



Our class today began by reading an excerpt from the book "Tsunami - Hope, Heroes, and incredible Stories of Survival". Today's Slice of Life is dedicated to the individuals globally that have been affected by disasters, providing us a snapshot into the human spirit, not only through what they endured but also celebrating those who triumphed.

Students had the following choices for today's slice :-

1. Imagine that you are animal, you sense that a natural hazard is coming.  What kind of animal are you? Where do you live? What do you do? Where do you go? Why?

2. Using the 2004 Earthquake and Tsunami as your topic, Just write. Reflect, Tell a story, share a memory. 

3. Resurrect an piece of writing from your journal, related to disasters. 




For me I have chose to write about bushfires, coming from Australia this is a huge threat every summer. 


The smell of smoke pervades the air
 choking, clawing its way through the corridors
 enveloping everything in its path. 


Forcing, tortured breaths, its recipients gasping for freshness
The fire spitting, wind howling, 
Roaring to a crescendo, searching for unwilling victims. 

Sirens blaring, panic and chaos
Years of memories 
Gone in an instant
From the ashes hope rises.
