A Fleeting Moment

By guest writer Deborah Fisher

GOING to buy a sandwich meant temporary escape. She was doing her best to keep going despite the pain, tiredness and sickness. Doing her best but failing to do everything, leading to her colleague snapping.

Standing waiting to cross the road, a fleeting thought crossed her mind. To step out would end the pain, tiredness and sickness forever.

Yet, a moment later she realised the students needed her help in their upcoming exams. Their futures mattered, if hers did not.

She would face the pain, tiredness and sickness for their sakes. And in a fleeting moment the decision was made.
