Photo by Paul Theodor Oja on

It was a chance he had to take. He’d seen it done on television screens and in the movies.
Such action brought help.
And he needed help.
He needed it so badly.
They had crashed and his family were hurt.
His wife and two young children aged four and two.
All conscious but confused, wounded and bleeding.
He found the flare, donned a hoodie, and stood under the subway bridge waving it in distress.
Please, he prayed, let somebody come and help us.
As a secondary wish, he added that they not judge and run from a life form not of their own.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
