Are ghosts real? Some people think they are, and others don’t. Some of the people who don’t believe in ghosts, do believe in spirits. The differences between the two is one haunts for revenge and the other watches over a live presence and has absolutely no intention of hurting them. There’s no actual evidence that proves ghosts are real, but there is this one urban legend I´ve read about on a website called ¨scaryforkids.com¨, and I’m not quite sure what to think about it, but tell me your thoughts.

  There once was this girl who´s parents neglected her. She didn’t have any friends at school, because the others thought she was creepy. She then grew up to marry a man named Taeko Saiki, she felt like he was the only person who actually cared about her. She gave birth to a little boy named Toshio. One day while she was out, her husband was snooping around. He found her diary and was sure that she was cheating. When she came back home, he was waiting for her. He beat her, attacked her, and slashed her with a knife right in front of their young son. The wife tried to flee, but her husband chased her. She slipped and fell, breaking her ankle. When she got to the front door, he broke her neck. She was alive, but paralyzed. The only sound she could make was a hoarse death rattle. Her husband dragged her upstairs, put her in a black bag, and left her in the attic to die. Since she had such a painful death, she came back as a vengeful ghost. She appeared to her husband and strangled him with her hair. Her name is Kayako, also known as The Grudge.´

After reading this story, I went to interview two girls, Victoria and Rashidah. I interviewed them because their opinions were different. I asked a few questions to Victoria, who believes in ghosts. “Do you believe in ghosts?,¨ ¨Are they real?,¨ ¨Why do you think that?,¨ ¨Have you ever seen any paranormal activity?,¨ ¨How do you think ghosts are created?,¨ and ¨Do you think ghosts and spirits are the same?¨ I asked her the few questions I had and she gave me some short answers.

 

When I asked if she believed in ghosts she said, ¨Yes.¨ When I asked her if they were real she said, ¨Of course.¨ ¨Why do you think that?¨  ¨Sometimes I feel like I can see them,¨ said Victoria.  ¨Have you ever seen one, any paranormal activity?¨ ¨I feel like I do and no,¨ she said. ¨How do you think they are created?¨ ¨When people die, they turn into a spirit and start haunting for revenge,¨ she said. ¨Are ghosts and spirits the same thing?¨ Lastly she said, ¨No.¨

The second person I interviewed was Rashidah, I asked her four questions. The four questions were “Why don’t you believe in ghosts?,” “Have you ever experienced any activity?,” “Do you believe in spirits?,” and “What’s the difference between the two?”

When I asked her why she doesn’t believe in ghosts she said, “I’ve never seen one.” ¨Have you ever experienced any activity?,¨ “No,¨ said Rashidah. ¨Do you believe in spirits?¨ “No,” she said. “Is there a difference between the two?,” she said “There is no difference.”
