Reader's Diary #1440- Devon Balwit: Down the Road

I think the most brilliant thing about Devon Balwit's flash fiction piece, "Down the Road," is the use of "we" rather than "I." A story about a group witnessing a distraught old man, driving to get his social security cheque, does a brilliant job of showcasing the fear of growing old: loneliness. Right now it's "we," but down the road it might just be "I."
