A Thunder Accident.

By a female, under 16 years old, in Tranzoia, Kenya
Map of A THUNDER ACCIDENT. A story which i will never forget ever and ever in my life is about a day which we as family children were doing our daily routine work as usual.We decided to go and fetch firewood for cooking.we got out of the village without the notice of our parents and even neighbours.We left the village at about 10.00 am. As we were walking and chatting like monkeys on our way,i looked at he sky and noticed that the weather was changing.I told the others to collect firewood as first as they can so that when the rain falls,we are back home. We collected firewood and soon the rain started falling.We ran to a house which looked as if the owners migrated to another place.We were trembling like a leaf of a tree being blown by wind.Suddenly,we heard a loud deafening sound and we all assembled at the centre of that house.After the rain,we went back home hurriedly and when we arrived,we met our parents very worried.We asked what was going on and told us that one of our neighbours cow was struck by thunderstorm.We were very worried but we had no other option except to burry the cow because we cant eat. We raised fund as a community and bought another cow for the man. Read more.
