The souls that I could not save
A seven word story this time. Even though I thought about superheroes when I came up with the idea, it is a feeling that anyone who gives a damn feels. Anyone with a hero complex, this innate drive to "save the world" will feel this. Don't take this story too literally.

Hi there! I've chosen you as the 92nd person for my 200 Comments Project Challenge. Basically I'm giving comments to 200 different people in a time frame within a week :D (Big Grin)

It must be very hard for a hero, especially when she/he fails to save people's lives and failed to protect other people. But I like how this can be applied to minor situations in real life that we all face. This is very powerful and emotionally charged.

The thing about a seven-word story is that you've got to make it a sledgehammer blow or it comes off weak.

This is a sledgehammer blow. Good stuff.

If a hero feels bad about not saving souls of strangers, imagine how a mother feels when she can't save her children
