Here is my response:
At first I could see only a block wall from the hospital window. It defined my future, going nowhere. I fell off the porch steps and broke my back. They said I would never walk again. I had become a burden to my family.
When my young son looked out the window, he saw something else.
“They could put dirt in there and plant trees. Then it would be a park for the patients.”
I thought about that long after he left. My life could be a block wall or a park. Only I could determine which it would be.
