On September 25, at 8 am Melba and eight other African American black people are going to an all white school. When she got out of here house she saw a lot of soldiers lining up her house and she also saw news reporters hanging from trees.
When they went to school the solders told Melba that its taking them a long a time to dive to the school because apparently theirs a mob of people trying to hurt her.
Melba realized she did not kiss her mother goodbye so she regrets that because her eyes were full of tears when she left.
All the soldiers were making a wall so that she can go to school without getting harmed. She was surprised seeing men with guns in their hands.
The mob got a littlt closer so they had to formed some type of circle that could lead her to school.
This was the first time an all black student was going to an all white school so Melba knows she has to be brave and smart to get an education.
