In My Perfect World
by Janelle Breese Biagioni
When people wonder why I do what I do, I tell them this…
Because in my perfect world, everyone would readily wear a helmet, a seatbelt, and drive their vehicle knowing the lives of many can be altered with one single moment of carelessness.
Because in my perfect world, there would never be another child to wonder why daddy can’t walk the creek bed to look for fish anymore, or wonder where his laughter has gone, or why his eyes hold the emptiness of no hope in tomorrow.
Because in my perfect world, there would be never another wife who grieves the loss of her lover, her companion, and an equal partner to walk at her side.
Because in my perfect world, families would never know the place of darkness that holds broken hearts and shattered dreams.
Because in my perfect world, government would hold the rights of people equal, knowing there is no one person deserving anything less.
Because in my perfect world, the arms of this nation would be linked together walking as a whole.
Because in my perfect world, brain injury simply doesn’t exist.
