#FF: Beyond the Horizon

The students stepped off the bus and fell silent. You could “hear a pin drop”, as they say. The structure of what sat before them, the height and details. They hadn’t seen anything like it before.

Many of Ms. Tiddles class were kids from the Miami “hood”. They ventured as far as they could walk, and they definitely didn’t see such prestigious places like this museum. This trip was their winning lottery ticket.

Soon after arriving, the tourist lead the group inside. For the next hour and half, these students relieved history through pictures and stories.

  2. The best place to take them. PS I hope you don’t mind but I think you mean relived, not relieved.

  5. Aww I’m glad these students got the chance to see this museum. Impoverished schools really are the hardest on the kids.
