The day my teacher was away...

The day my teacher was away, a student died, his name was Connor. This student was loved by everyone in his school. The news of his untimely death flashed through the school like lightning. The whole school was saddened by this death..

A student in room 8 suddenly said,"he's not dead, he's right there, in good health. See", other students suddenly followed,"he's not dead", even the teacher agreed, so did the principal, the principal said,"Connor is not dead, he's in good health and you should continue to work as a team and enjoy the rest of your days at school until the summer break."

As the day went on students still went on, pretending that Connor was still alive, the school's gates closed by themselves and the day seemed to freeze in time, the clocks stayed frozen, showing the same time, 12:26. Then suddenly books were flying everywhere, one book hit a student's head, that student was Eugene. Unfortunately, he fell unconscious, the books still flew everywhere and the pupils ducked under their tables for some form of protection.

Many people were scared, four students managed to get out of the classroom. Another event of hysteria began.  The doors shut and were locked tight and all of the students of room 8 were trapped in their room, along with students with them. This chaos didn't stop. People in the classroom tried to figure out methods to stop this, countermeasures to be exact.

The events started to get worse.  Outside the classroom, the ground was shaking and the playground suddenly fell apart. The fields started to open. Then a person soon shouted out,"WE NEED TO STOP PRETENDING THAT CONNOR  IS ALIVE." His name was Tristan. The idea struck through everyone that they had to accept the cruel reality that he really was dead. So, that stopped the pretending. There was a bright light, everyone's vision went white and couldn't see anything.

The thing with this light was that it changed the entire atmosphere of the students, it made everyone, not scared, instead, they seemed very relaxed, the light somehow was soothing. As everyone's vision returned to normal, the classroom, field, and playground looked new, it was like nothing had happened. The gates were open and books were back on the shelf and time went back to normal.

Students were dumbfounded as to what had occurred. They carried on with the day. As the school day came to an end, students went home with mixed emotions, 'What happened' they thought and then life returned to normal as if the event and anxiety had never happened.

We are learning about the assumption of Mary
This is not my article, this article belongs to Loyolapress original link above.
Article:
One glance at a daily newspaper or a television news show will tell you that some people do not value human life. But this is not news. During the Holocaust of World War II, millions of people were tortured and killed. This terrible tragedy led many people to wonder about human life. How valuable is a single human life? How valuable are the lives of the elderly, the unborn, the terminally ill? Are their lives worth as much as those of people who are healthy and active, working, and raising families?

God creates human life and gives it value. And Jesus gave his life on the cross to redeem each individual human person. By doing this, Jesus said, “Your life is worth my dying to save you.” Through his own Resurrection, Jesus showed us the glory of our resurrection and of our living in the Holy Spirit. Jesus promised that the body and soul of a person, separated at death, will be joined together again in glory at the Last Judgment. The person will be whole for all eternity.

The feast of Mary’s Assumption is a preview of what our lives will be. At the end of her earthly life, Mary was assumed, or taken up, into heaven body and soul. She did not have to wait for the end of the world, as we do. God granted her this special privilege because of her sinlessness and her fullness of grace.

The Church has always believed in Mary’s assumption into heaven. But on November 1, 1950, Pope Pius XII focused the attention of the whole world on the Assumption of Mary as a dogma and mystery of our faith. This mystery shows us that God wants every human person, body and soul, to be in glory forever, just as Mary is now. This dogma shows how important every single human life is. Pope Plus XII hoped that by thinking about Mary’s Assumption, people all over the world would develop a deeper respect for their own lives and their own bodies. He also hoped that people would grow in respect for the lives of others.

Assumption of Mary prayer
Father in heaven,
All creation rightly gives you praise,
for all life and all holiness come from you.
In the plan of wisdom,
she who bores the Christ in her womb,
he who is raised in body and soul in glory to be with him in heaven.
May we follow her example in reflecting your holiness
and join your hymn of endless love and praise.

We ask this through Christ our lord.
Amen

We are learning to understand the 'Assumption of Mary.'

Explanation about the Assumption:
One glance at a daily newspaper or a television news show will tell you that some people do not value human life. But this is not news. During the Holocaust of World War II, millions of people were tortured and killed. This terrible tragedy led many people to wonder about human life. How valuable is a single human life? How valuable are the lives of the elderly, the unborn, the terminally ill? Are their lives worth as much as those of people who are healthy and active, working, and raising families?
God creates human life and gives it value. And Jesus gave his life on the cross to redeem each individual human person. By doing this, Jesus said, “Your life is worth my dying to save you.” Through his own Resurrection, Jesus showed us the glory of our resurrection and of our living in the Holy Spirit. Jesus promised that the body and soul of a person, separated at death, will be joined together again in glory at the Last Judgment. The person will be whole for all eternity.
The feast of Mary’s Assumption is a preview of what our lives will be. At the end of her earthly life, Mary was assumed, or taken up, into heaven body and soul. She did not have to wait for the end of the world, as we do. God granted her this special privilege because of her sinlessness and her fullness of grace.

Prayer to Mary:
Father in heaven,
all creation rightly gives you praise,
for all life and all holiness come from you.
In the plan of your wisdom
she who bore the Christ in her womb
was raised body and soul in glory to be with him in heaven.
May we follow her example in reflecting your holiness
and join in her hymn of endless love and praise.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Importance:
Assumption is very important because Mary the mother of Jesus is taken up to heaven to be with her son. Jesus is God and Mary's only son. And because Mary is taken up to heaven, it is a very important feast day for the mission sisters.

Also Mary is the patron saint of New Zealand.
