Concrete Message

The most incredible thing happened to me. Something that has never happened to me in my adult life. I fell. On the street and on my face. I fell. Hard. Hard enough to have a massive egg-sized bump on my forehead, a swollen lip, a broken finger and three cracked teeth. I can still feel the…
