Soar











It has been a rough day dear friends. I visited this awful place today and wanted you all to see what it looked like. The classrooms were almost as we left them 12 years ago, our benches were still there, some were full with papers, our papers, old schoolbooks laid everywhere, our old drawings still decorated the wall. Drawings that said: "show each other respect", "be kind", "a no is always a no" and so forth.

I trembeled as I stepped inside my old classroom at the top floor, the room even smelled the same. I sat down at my old bench by the window and cried. I had a friend with me and she held her arms around me telling me to be strong. It wasn't easy, the whole house was filled with memories and every inch of me felt soar.

I visited each and every room but the classroom I have shared with you(the top photo) were the hardest.

I brought life to many hard feelings today.

I'm glad you had a friend with you and that you documented it. Why was this place abandoned?

PJ: The closed closed 12 years ago, I am not sure if it were for financial reasons but the students were moved to a school nearby.

Omami: Yes, the whole place was very spooky since everyhting was still there. I found some old drawings of mine and found my old schoolbench. Strange it is.

Starkt och modigt av dig att våga möta det förflutna.
"Trollen spricker i ljuset" sägs det ju så jag hoppas att det känns bättre. Vad bra att du tog med en vän dit.
