Diary Entry

This is a diary entry I have written in response to a short animated movie we are studying for literature.


Dear Diary

I feel darkness coming into my body, I feel like I did something awful, I feel like dying, I feel useless.

Everyday, I go upstairs to look out my window looking for someone who could accept my appearance and qualities, sometimes people just won't let me hangout with them just because of who I am.

Values

 Today we discussed our values. We had to dig deep and thought hard about what really counts. I chose people as something I value because I thought about if the world ended tomorrow and what would I do first or miss. I thought of people because I think that us humans represent life and death, and how we have a life to live. 

This is a person standing on top of the world representing all of us humans and all of the livings things.

Stations Of The Cross 2021

               Introduction

Stations Of The Cross is a religious play, played by the seniors in school to teach the young how Jesus died.


There were 14 stations so it was pretty long. All of us got a chosen role, some were villagers and some of us were Roman Soldiers. I was a soldier. 




The hardest part was when we carried the cross onto the stage. Once we put Jesus onto the cross, one of the soldiers would give me a nail one by one, while I would hammer the nails into Jesus' on his arms. After all that, the next station was when Jesus died on the cross. I took down the arms of Jesus off the cross then laid him down on the ground. Two soldiers came up and rolled up a white cloth as if Jesus was in the burial cave. (No harm was done in this play)


This experience was  great! I learnt a lot about the death of Jesus, risk and sacrifice... even if its dangerous.

Always believe in yourself!
