Racism. An Accident. And a Gift.
As the Spirit of Christmas descends on a small, southwestern town, the residents are strained by a sluggish economy, and harbour more than just anxiety over an uncertain future. The townsfolk resent the ‘brown-skinned foreigners’ who reside as their neighbours, and their actions mirror the sentiments of su corazón. It is a town riddled with racism.
Chris, a young migrant worker’s son, had just received a shiny, new bike and was enjoying his first ride when his life, and the life of his mother were suddenly, and irreversibly changed by the screech of rubber on the pavement, the whir of sirens, and a rush to the hospital.
Will a gift given from a pure heart, change deep-seated attitudes and teach a town to love all mankind? A story written for the ages, with a tale as old as life itself, unfolds in the pages of this short story.
