Traumatic experience

My daughter this past Wednesday has had a traumatic experience in one of her classes.  Apparently this friend of hers walked into class not speaking to anyone or putting up his books in his locker and sat down at his desk and put his head down.  When class was going to begin the teacher asked him to sit up so that she knew he was paying attention.  When he didn't respond to her she went up to him and lifted him up from his position and he was not moving, breathing and had no pulse.  The teacher began CPR as she was crying and yelled out to her class to go next door to tell the teacher to call 911 and to take the class out of the room.  The class was escorted to the cafeteria as the ambulance came to pick him up.  They still have no word on how this child is doing. 

I can't imagine how my daughter must of felt as she has seen all of this happen.  She came home crying as she told me.  I also can't imagine being the parents receiving this phone call about their child being a parent of three myself.  It is heart breaking to know that this child is going through this.  I have been praying for him and his family since Wednesday knowing that prayer has a great deal of power.


  1. Naomi,

    That is very heartbreaking. I will also keep the family and your daughter in my prayers. Update us when you may have one possibly.


  2. WOW I am very surprised no one knows how he is doing. That is very scary. Being a parent I dread getting a phone call from school even if its just him getting in trouble I always think the worst is going to happen to me.

  4. I am so happy to hear that the boy is doing better! My heart sank when I read your post! I bet your daughter will remember that for the rest of her life!
