“How’s grandma?” Cynthia asked.
“She’s resting. I baked cookies. They’re fresh out of the oven.”
“How can you bake cookies after what happened to her?”
“I baked them for her.”
“Mom, you should be furious. Grandma was attacked because she’s Asian and nobody lifted a finger to help her.”
“Maybe they were scared. The assailant could have had a gun.”
“Thank God, he didn’t. And those two security guards should be fired.”
“What good would that do?”
“They witnessed everything but instead of intervening, they locked the door. You want to tell me that they were scared too?”
This was inspired by the true story of the vicious attack on a 65 year old woman. The security guards witnessed the incident but they didn’t intervene and instead shut the door.
