Read the text carefully then do the activities.
Text:
Last summer, in a hot midday, I was at home watching TV with my wife; suddenly a tsunami
the city. Our house collapsed and everything, people, cars, trees, and houses. People were screaming and
running in all directions but waves were too fast and too high to escape .Karin is taken by a huge wave, all
I can do now is survive. I swim. I can see the water hit buildings, and then watch the buildings collapse.
I saw a boy, cut on his cheek, holding onto a big piece of foam. We make eye contact and shrug at each
other. When I look back, he was drowning. People were floating or drowning. I decided that this is not
the time to die.
Water pushed me towards a building that is collapsing. I swim and swim and I’m still pushed right towards, then water seems to have stopped. I’m not swimming or climbing, but something in between. I make my way to the land. I climb up onto a dike and look around. I scream out for Karin. I started pulling people out of mud, from under houses. I pull people out of the water, only to have them choke and die. It is beyond any nightmare I ever had.
I find only bodies. One looks like Karin, under some rubble. I pull her out and it’s a woman I don’t know, still gripping her scooter, mouth agape. When I find out Karin is alive, I fall apart. She had held a tree, wrapped herself around it, and never let go. She has a few bruises and a black eye. I’m ecstatic to see her like that. The next day I go back to where my house was to see the damage. The bottom floor of our house is gone. The upper floor is missing a couple of walls. None of our possessions are left. But I thank my God who kept me alive because I feel sad and grateful.
