It started out as a great summer day with my band class. Than all of a sudden something happened that has not happened in 16 years while the class was on a trip. What had happened had ruined everyone’s day of fun.
In June of 2011, we went to Kings Island to have a fun day before school started back up in August. We had planned to be there until 10pm. We split up into small groups and did our different things.
