You might have already heard about it on the news but a teacher was stabbed and killed at my school. She was the nicest, kindest, loving teacher there and I don't know how I feel. I was in Maths when a call came saying that the lesson was extended for 10 minutes. I was a bit curious but thought nothing of it. Then the lesson finished and I was walking to RE when a teacher blocked the corridor saying we had to use the other one. Then I heard someone say a teacher had been stabbed. It's weird, you hear about things like this all the tiem in the news but you never really know how it will affect you if it happened in your area.

Oh wow, that's terrible. I heard about the stabbing on the news yesterday. How horrible you and your fellow pupils have to go through this. I heard the school is to reopen today - I hope it isn't too traumatic.

It did open, and it wasn't too bad. What really amazed me was that yesterday most people got home at about 4 and by 6:30 a full memorial service had been organised at the school! Just goes to show what can happen when people come together (pun not intended.)

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."

Sometimes it is easy to forget just how worldwide The Beatles, as a group and as individuals, impact really was - as it can often be read as an impact on the developed world. Sometimes though, you find yourself reminded how what they did touched every part of this little planet, and still helps some of the poorest protest.

A couple of weeks ago over 200 schoolgirls in Nigeria were kidnapped by a fundamentalist group opposed to the education of women. Yesterday there was a march on the Nigerian parliament protesting the lack of progress in returning those children to their parents. Some words were changed to fit the circumstance, but they turned to John Lennon for something to sing as they marched...

Very sad and surprising news that the former British #1 tennis player Elena Baltatcha has died aged 30 from liver cancer. 30 years old is nothing.
