My Robbery Story 5 Years Ago.

It was August 24 2005, I was going to K-Mart with my Dad because we were getting new school supplies for school the next day. It was about 7:30 and we had gotten almost all of the items we needed. I asked my dad if I could go look at the toys (that were in the front of the store) while he checked out. He said no. So we went up to the cashier and were checking out when i heard the alarm go off but i didn't know what alarm it was. Then i heard someone shatter the front door and i heard the glass shatter. I saw the red light over head going off. Then i heard 3 gun shots. It was the scariest moment of my life. My dad yelled "Get Down!!" and we ducked and ran to the back off the store to the employee only area looking for an exit. There was no exit. I remember walking into that room and seeing like 15 people in there calling 911. We went into one of the isles and hid under the self. Then the police ovfficer came around and said he was gone.

Even though that was 5 years ago, i remember it like it was yesterday. It will always be the scariest moment of my life. I will always be scared. I am not as scared as i was because i stay home alone, i go to sleep overs, i even went back into K-Mart to relive what happened. If this has ever happened to you, don't be afraid to get help. I want to  a thearipist for 3 months and she helped me so much. I am 14 now and still think about it everyday but i move on and live my life.
