Home in San Leandro

Sheena L.

I was seven years old and home from school when the shaking started. I was watching Square One Television (a kids’ show about math!), my favorite show. I remember clinging to the corner of my couch, and as my favorite show went to static and the huge orange tree outside our window started swaying violently, I went from confused to dismayed. I remember staying very still and thinking, “is this ever going to end?”
