Reader's Diary #2146 - Hannah Storm: Winners and Losers, 2004

Hannah Storm's flash fiction story "Winner and Losers, 2004" details a journalist amidst a soccer celebration in Haiti. The idea, it would seem, would be for the Haitians to have moment's peace, a break from the recent violence that has fallen upon their home. 

However, you can tell the journalist isn't buying it and as the story progresses we get a little more insight into her cynical outlook. 

It's an excellent premise though at times I found the story a bit choppy and disjointed.
