April 25th was the day the earthquake happened. I can never forget this very dark day. We were lucky that it was a Saturday and we were at home just having finished our church, getting ready to go to our relative’s party. I was
studying in my room when the earthquake occurred. At first, I was confused about what was happening. Everybody was rushing down the stairs to get outside our house. I was still in my room with the house shaking. I stood at the edge of the door and wall.
When the earth became calm, I went outside and saw that the walls of our basketball court and the wall attached to our gate had gone. Then we, as well as all of our neighbors gathered outside the field near our house. We stayed all day in the field.
