Palmerston North, 2006

I was in year 4 and this girl in my class at the time came to me and said “My dad has the right to kill you and your family.”

I had no knowledge of 9/11. I was 3yrs old when those towers were attacked. I was confused because I didn’t understand why she was telling me this and told my mum. My mum was furious and went to school and told the principal who later talked to the girl and promised my mum that this kind of behaviour would not be tolerated at our primary.
