A Day To Remember

It was a Monday morning, i was going to school. When i was on way to school i heard the noise coming from my neighbors compound. I decided to run there to see what was going on. When i got there i found that a mother was caring painfull that her son has passed away. After some few minutes people were all over the compound. They started to tell that mum that sorry for what hard happened this morning. When people were about to left were scarered over. One young girl came running and saying that the dead person has been weak up. When people heard they started running away. I was shock with that seen. That day was very bad day in my life.
