Prologue

You hear it all the time. You hear it from your parents, you hear it on the news, you hear it on radios, and you hear it from your teachers.

But I didn't think it would ever happen to me.

How would it happen to me? I had the greatest friends and caring parents; these people who cares about me. People who wouldn't let anything bad happen to me.

But it had.

I'm leaving.
