|Takes a moment. Takes a moment of looking away, of being distracted of doing something one shouldn't and life can change forever for the one and others in his or her way. Simply written but very strong write, Karla

|Wow, this is the BOLD face of reality. I am so glad that you wrote this, I cannot stand bullies and have defended my retarded brother (in a group home) and his twin who lives with me all of my life. ARGHHHH! I would never want anyone hurt but you know what they say about karma. Great write my sister.
Love, Janet xoxoxo

|sometimes karma comes back on people, whether possitive or negative. You captured how he feels to know that he will probably be picked on and how he now feels sorry, maybe more for himself than those he picked on.

|This is very touching! An ironic tale indeed. Everything happens for a reason. Perhaps he was meant to see the other side of things. One of my dogs has a wheelchair, because of his paralyzed rear legs. He's always been sweet, so I think the lesson was meant for me and my hubby rather than our gentle Drako. Hugs:) Sheila|

|Karla, this was excellent. I remember high school days very well, although they were many years ago. I agree with one of the other comments that said it should be required reading in school. Alot of times, kids think that they're untouchable and there is a wonderful lesson to be learned in this story.|

|This really is powerful. I wish it was given to all teenagers to read. The problem is, they'll still believe that nothing can touch them.
Strong words, great development, poignant ending.

|GREAT WRITE~!!!!!!!!! A powerful message in your short story. It's called karma, and none of us can escape it. It's a law of the Universe. My Dad was blind, and I was so IN THEIR FACE if anyone so much as thought to say he was "not right". Love this story!

|WOW, how did I miss this one, Karla? I know of a kid just like that, not so much the jerk prior to his accident, but a kind of a jock, a world class swimmer, he would have eventually became, too bad he and a tree and his car did not see it that way too...he is now missing both of his legs...I have not heard anything about him since then, way back in the early to mid 70s, what a shame...Find Peace, Ed & Rufuz|

|Karla, this is sad. I don't know why people have to be so judgemental about appearances...we had our share of those belittlers and out right gangsters in our schools...but I can't say any of them have ever amounted to anything...your poem is proof in the immortal words "let not ye judges, lest ye be judged"...thanks for this great story...Fletcher B|
