Sitting up on the bed. Ears are alert to the constant beeping of the monitors. Eyes survey the sterile hospital surroundings. A man stands at the foot of the bed. A photographer is next to him.
“You are a hero. As the Mayor of the city I am proud of your accomplishments”. The Mayor moves next to me and the photographer takes our picture.
I tried to kill a man by pushing him in front of the subway train. Before I could pull back, my arms were broken. Commuters believe I was trying to stop a suicide attempt.
So be it.
