    Proof reading school work

    I am a college student struggling with grammar. This is the first time on this forum. I was wondering if someone could proof read my hw. I had to come up with a 10 sentence paragraph and identify the helping verb and main verb (helping verb was underlined and main verb was bolded) and then conjugate those verbs. I just want to make sure I am on the right path.

    My cousin’s son was attacked by a shark.
    ----------

    It had happened last week in North Carolina.
    ______
    When we received the phone call, we were shocked.
    _________
    We spoke with Hunter, the boy who was hurting.
    ______
    He was in good spirits when we had called.
    _______
    He was very sad when my mom had spoken to him.
    ________
    He had lost his left arm due to the attack but is adjusting well.
    ____
    We will visit him this week.
    -----
    My family was going to North Carolina anyway for a wedding.
    ______
    He will not be able to make the wedding, and our family will miss him.

    Re: Proof reading school work

    We don't help with homework, as it's unfair to the other students in your class. However, since you have done the homework, I'll bend the rules a bit and just comment that you're mostly on the right track, but that you have an error.

    That's about as much as I can say and still adhere to forum policy.
