I woke up today. Most people take that for granted. But when you live in a military war zone, you don’t take anything for granted.

I woke up today. My mom was yelling at me to get out of bed or I’d be late for school.
I really hate going.

I woke up today, wishing I could go to school. But I am a girl. And where I live, school is only for boys. Maybe one day when I wake up I will go to school.

I woke up today. The other half of my bed empty. I really miss him.

I woke up today. I hopped out of bed and quickly got dressed. Today is my favorite day. Today my dad gets home.

I woke up today. My stomach is hungry. But, I still can’t eat.

I woke up today. Even though a year ago they told me that in four months I’d never wake up again.

I woke up today. Then, I went back to sleep.

I woke up today, and for the first time I used my new legs.

I woke up today. Oh no! I’m Late!

I woke up today. The baby’s crying. I wish I didn’t have to do this alone.

I woke up today. I really like being able to see the beach from my window.

I woke up today. They are yelling again.

I woke up today to the smell of something yummy. Hmmm. Pancakes! My favorite!

I woke up today to this tiny little baby who wasn’t here yesterday.

I woke up today, and I had this feeling. This really really good feeling. I think today is going to be better than every other day.
