Reader's Diary #3022- Naomi Kanakia: Goodwill

 Naomi Kanakia's short story "Goodwill" is full of hilarious cynicism and is also written in the 2nd person, so needless to say, I enjoyed it immensely. 

In a nutshell, it's the life of a person who tries to pick a responsible, ethical career but always seems to wind up contributing to the very ideals they rally against. But I suppose, the point is that they never stop trying. Maybe it just takes everyone else to join in to make a difference.

It reads a bit more like a parable than a typical short story, but it's too amusing to fault for being didactic.
