Re: Shaken - Eric Walters

After waiting for a long time on the plane Josh was hearing a lot of giggling and twittering from the other kids, and Josh was questioning himself that is it their first time taking on a plane or if they were just nervous. Josh listened to the music and sleep because he doesn’t wanna hear kids giggling around and twittering from the other kids, and when Josh wake up Sarah sit beside him and had a little chat about there life and how are they been doing recently after chatting with Sarah, Josh turned his head to the window and closed his eyes, he was thinking, and hoping that there might end up being an empty seat the flight, and he is saying that he might be the only one in the plane.

Re: Shaken - Eric Walters

As I continue reading this book, the flight attendants were coming down the aisle, checking on seatbelts and the overhead luggage. Josh was so excited that he had become a part of their mission trip as Naomi mention that Josh`s father was the best that he is leading the mission trip in Haiti when Sarah heard a news on a tv before they went to Haiti she said that there was a hurricane that might be going toward to the place they are going, as Josh talk about the earthquakes that happen in the past, that killed thousands of people and destroyed the whole capital as Sarah said that she didn`t hear anything about any of that as she exclaimed that she didn`t it on tv.

Re: Shaken - Eric Walters

When the time past by Naomi made a little whistling sound through her nose as she slept. Her mouth was open and there was a bit of drool that coming out of the corner, as Josh said that Naomi was definitely friendly even though she really dressed her self properly. Josh keep thinking about thing’s that Naomi said to him about encouraging lesson in Haiti even if it was, far and away, the poorest country in the western world, it had more than nine million people in a country of Haiti that it was smaller than Lake Superior. As Josh continued to descend and start to pick the individual features roads, and the occasional house.

Re: Shaken - Eric Walters

Josh heard that the wheels were being lowered, and Naomi was startled at the sound because they are about to land to their destination as Josh was trying to calm down Naomi that she is feeling scared when they finally land softly at the ground Josh ask his father if he could open up the window, but once Josh open up the window he couldn’t really see anything. When Josh got out of the plane and he met a guy that said to him “Bonjour!” Josh knows that he will be saying hello to him as Josh replied “merci,” but the other guy said “are you American. Has Josh said that he was Canadian and the other guy replied “oh ok,” after their conversation Josh headed to the building of where they are going to be staying.

Re: Shaken - Eric Walters

When Pastor Dave led Josh and his friends out the doors of the terminal to an old, yellow bus that didn’t look as though as Josh would ever imagine it, there were three men loading Josh and his friend luggage as he can see the big blue backpack with the bright Canadian flag on it. When Josh has seen hundreds and hundreds of cars, trucks, and buses Josh decided to get on the bus because he doesn’t feel safe outside that might be someone is watching on him. Josh ask Pastor David if he can close the entrance and the windows of the bus then Pastor David closes the entrance and the windows of the bus, after waiting for a long time they decided to leave as possible. Josh never felt the pressure of how he was being watched by someone and he will never forget it.

Re: Shaken - Eric Walters

When Josh realized that he was still being watched by someone that his trying to chase him, Josh did something to be able to find who is the guy that is trying to chase him. Josh saw what the guy looks like and after that, he is gone and disappeared out of nowhere when Josh got back home safe Pastor Dave ask that if he was alright that if something that happens to him or if he got hurt but Josh said that he is alright. The officer asks Josh who the guy that was trying to watch him but he forgot what he looks like and the officer explains that Port-au-Prince is a dangerous place, and Josh’s father said that they need to get out of the place as soon as possible because it can be life-threatening on him.

Re: Shaken - Eric Walters

As soon as possible Josh and his father with their couple of friends trying to leave in the hotel because the guy that who watching Josh was still around there and Pastor David decided to uses the bus to leave and find another place to where they can have a rest and sleep for one night. When Pastor David remember that he had a friend that living in Port-au-Prince and ask that if they could stay to one night as the friend of Pastor David let them go sleep there, they also met a lot of kids and Josh made friends when he was in Pastor David friends house. But Josh still feels a little bit scared after all the things that are happening on him and he can feel that the guy was still watching on him everytime he goes.

After finishing their job Josh went back to the orphanage to help the kids and feed them, the kids are so happy after getting fed up and they were also laughing because of Josh making a funny facial expression. Josh decided to go back to the building and have a sleep because he was tired after all the things he has been doing all day.
