Dear Diary, 
                   You wouldn't believe what happened yesterday!! It had been a crazy day. We went to a Restorative Justice meeting to get the justice I deserve and punish her. I have never been so happy... she said sorry to me!! She promised that she would never bother me again or her friends. It made me feel better. Her parents were sorry too. They were so ashamed that they had raised a bully. The meeting was finally over and we were heading to our car and I saw here walking towards us, crying. She said sorry again. She told me that she regretted everything she did to me. I was so confused- why had she approached me?  I asked her why? It was so awkward. She told me that she is getting kicked out of school and they're moving into a new house. She also told me that I need to be happy now that she's gone. I felt bad because I'm happy and she is sad. I hugged her and got in the car and left for lunch feeling relieved.

Human Shield

He wakes up  early in the morning with a smile on his face, feeling excited because after a long time he’s finally going outside for the first time since lockdown. He didn’t sleep well last night thinking about where he wanted to go today.  He woke up his mom to get breakfast ready. After he finished his breakfasts he sat on the couch and turned the T.V on,  still deciding where he wanted to go. After a few minutes he finally decided where he wanted to go and immediately took a shower. His mom packed everything they needed into their own backpacks.

      He was all packed up and ready to go to the park, to play for hours. Waiting for his sister  to come out  with their backpacks and snacks. Their parents said they'd meet them at the park so they started walking slowly to the park. They saw a neighbour and said good morning, with a smile on their faces. They heard birds singing  in the background. Getting thirsty, he decided to drink some water. His sister walked faster, jumping and swinging her hands. Suddenly she turns into a corner where he can’t see her. Things get dangerous as he hears his sister screaming for help. Stopping immediately he runs to his sister protecting her without thinking about it.  He becomes a human shield and loses consciousness. 

He wakes up in an ambulance with blurry vision. Looking for his mom and sister he can hear the doctors talking about how bad the situation is. He can also hear the siren. Feeling the pain in his face, he starts crying. He’s rushed into the surgery room. As soon as he is in there they inject him painkillers. After 10 hours the surgery is finally done.

After many days they finally go home. He doesn’t feel any pain. 

His Aunt and other relatives are waiting for them to come home. His Aunt takes a picture of him looking like a mummy and posts it on social media thanking him for being a hero and protecting his sister. A few days later 1000’s of people around the world see the post.

A real hero for saving his little sister.
