1: Dear journal Today I woke up around 9 am and started off as a good day. Then I called my friend to see if he wanted to hang out and go down to the neighborhood café and grab a snack. So while we were walking I heard a big explosion and saw pieces of debri fly on top of cars and houses. Then we ran over to where the explosion too see what happen. Later on that day they reported what happen on the news but they couldn’t describe who died in that accident. So we left it as that and went on with our day.
2: Dear journal The next day I went off to school and everyone was talking about what happen at the neighborhood café. So then the teacher told the class that the bombing was intentional they said it was a suicide bombing. So then I asked my teacher if they knew who did it and they said that it was the al Qaeda. So that kind of scared everyone and said that they were going to cancel school after today for a whole week. So I was pretty scared and wondering who died in the accident.
3: Dear journal Today is two days after the accident happen I’d like to explain myself my name is Karl Hoffman, I am 14 years old and I am Jewish. My father is 45 years old and he is a rabbi. My mother died when I was 8 years old in a shooting at a food market right down the street from our house. So yea my father has been worried these past few days because his best friend has not picked up the phone or been at his house so my father thinks something has happened.

The 1st women was a 26 year old Jewish who was just stopping to buy a coffee. The 2nd woman was a 33 year old who just stopped by to buy a snack. So everyone was in shock to find out who were the women because we knew them from the neighborhood. Then my father was like how sad that that happen to those 2 women so we went to the café to pay tribute to there death.
