I hear the faintest sound of a voice in the distant, almost inaudible. You can hear footsteps in the distance, but see no one there. The hum of the heat overhead is constantly present. It´s so quiet and peaceful at the moment, you could hear a pen drop.
This will all change in less than a minute.
The almost silent halls will soon be filled with laughter and the sound of friends greeting one another. Some voices will be filled with excitement, while others will reflect the dread of beginning another day. Some will enter in silence, while others will rush in to eagerly start the day. Either way, chaos will ensue.
Teachers will almost instantly emerge from all corners of the building to greet students. Materials in hand and smiles on their faces, they are ready to begin a new day as well. Behind the scenes, they have been preparing for the moment to come.
And with the ring of a bell, silence turns into the excitement and roar of the beginning of a new school day.
