Eyes Open by Patricia Abbott

“Eyes Open” is one of those stories that makes you think.  In the story a father sees his son and another boy harassing a downs syndrome girl.  He knows he should confront them but he’s too stunned by the incident.  The girl’s parent drives in to the parking lot and the girl is saved and the father wonders if he should go and apologize for his son’s behavior.  Then at home he wonders if he should talk to his son about what happened.  Like many people he has an excuse for all of his decisions.  You can read the story here  http://www.beattoapulp.com/pulp.htm
