That morning I got dressed as usual. I was just leaving for school when I noticed that my shoes were filthy. I went back inside to polish them. Staying home those five extra minutes probably saved my life.
When I came outside again, my mother was on the lawn picking flowers. Somebody yelled, “Tsunami!” We thought it was an April fool’s joke. Then, I looked up and saw a huge wall of dirty water. My mother pushed me inside and slammed the door, just as the wave struck our house. It felt like we’d been hit by a train.
The wave picked up the house, and we floated away. Seawater came up to my knees. I decided to changed clothes, in case we had to swim. When I opened the closet, the back wall was gone! All I could see past my hanging clothes were waves and dead fish. It looked like a strange painting.
Through the windows we could see people floating by, holding onto whatever they could. A boy was clinging to a piece of lumber. The waves carried us far out into Hilo Bay and back again three times.
Finally, our house slammed into a factory wall. Somehow, my parents and I climbed into the factory, where we found some neighbors on the upper floor.  We all got busy tearing burlap sugar bags into floated by, we threw them to the rope.
