I had by no means been that scared in my life. Individuals who I believed have been my pals bayed for blood. How dare I? An infidel blaspheme? I used to be 13, the boys making an attempt to kill me have been across the similar age. Sure! 13, 14, 15 year-olds. The VP hid me in his workplace and tried to calm them down.

To no avail. Earlier than lengthy, phrase had acquired out of the college that an “infidel blasphemed” and a mob gathered exterior the college partitions vowing to burn down the college if I wasn’t handed over. Thank goodness for the bravery of that VP. He smuggled me out requested me by no means to return.
