Ok... Today my point of view of people changed entirely. In school today something happened in my Language arts class. We were doing a project and we were aloud to walk around to room to get supplies. When i was walking back to my desk a kid pulls out a 3 inch pocket knife and deliberately holds it almost against my stomach. I started to back away and he just brought the knife closer to my stomach. When i was almost in the corner of the room he folded it up, started laughing and stuck it in his pocket and ran off to his seat. I was completely scared out of my mind! I asked him why he had the knife and he wanted to "protect" himself because he had to walk to school today. Even if he had a reason for the knife we are not supposed to have them in school. Plus he had NO reason to threaten me with it as a joke. My stomach churned thinking what was the right thing to do was. Luckily three of my friends saw the whole thing. But one thing i worried about was that if i told he would know who told, and he would come after me. But in lunch my friends said they were gonna tell if i was there or not. I made up my mind and said i would do it. Because this was a serious thing, the fact that he held a knife against me just made me feel so weird. And scared. So me and my friends told, and the kid got expelled from our school. Though he apparently told one of his friends that we ratted him out (he found out all four of us even though the teacher did not tell him he just knew, mainly because he saw use walking away separately with the teacher to go to the vice principles office to tell the story. Now i am scared about what he said that he was gonna get us. My friends and I had a reason for telling right? The freaking kid threatened me with a knife. I never knew people would do such things... Even though i have heard of all the murders and wars and killings i have never been threatened with a knife before, and at school of all places. What should i feel? I know i did the right thing...right? Im just happy that kid is away... -Navy- EDIT: This was in a middle school.
