I don’t know if you guys will believe me but I’m a survivor from the Sewol tragedy.
I can’t forget the 16th of April 2014.

The night before the trip, I was getting very excited for our school trip
Who knew that it would turn out like that

When our ship began to slant, me and my friends started to send text messages to our moms, dads and siblings.
But since we were inside the ship, the signal was bad. We would wipe away out tears and snot, and we grabbed each other’s’ hands and just laughed.

Right now, I feel so sorry for my friends and teacher.
They are still alone in the cold waters.

Before our trip, we went to Homeplus (Korean supermarket) to buy snacks, food and pretty accessories. And the day after, my friend went down the waters.

I can’t see them anymore right?

The memories are laying so painfully in my head. It looks like I’m really sick. I haven’t watched any of the Sewol related news, but even if I watched them, my friends aren’t alive anymore.

Even so, I’m curious. Maybe they are living happily on a deserted island.
When I think about this, I just cry to sleep.

I get nightmares about my friends grabbing my legs and calling my name and telling me to live.
I wake up screaming and it hurts my mom.

When my family heard that I was rescued, they started to shout and hugged me. My little sister who’s in her 2nd grade of middle school broke down crying and hugged me
Me too I cried with my family.
Thinking about it again makes me so sad and hurt

I’m so sorry towards my friends and teachers.

I will live the hardworking life for your sake.

I love you guys and I’m sorry. I miss you kids.

If this turns out to be fake, you’re a total b*tch

Even this is real, please don’t upload something like this here. The kids here are extra doubtful. This is a sensitive subject so if you see my comment, please remove this post

I don’t want to sound offensive but how did you survive?

Seriously, don't write posts like these. Why are you writing this? Your heart must be torned apart and hurt but do you really need the Internet to comfort you? If not, if you are this sad, do you want other people to feel your pain too? Do you feel that people writing you words of comfort from the Internet will really comfort you? If you are really a survivor from the Sewol incident, please do not seek comfort like this. In an anonymous place like the Internet, writing something like this will just make others feel bad.. The Sewol incident isn't something we should forget but please don't just write posts like these lightly. If you see this comment, please take down your post
