Below is my 100-word short story inspired by the above photo.
*** GOD'S RAINBOW ***
I was back in the big city when a midnight call came from the ER.
"Your mother was brought in tonight. She is in a coma with extremely, weak vital signs."
"Amtrak can get me there by 9am. Please keep her alive until I get there. Can you do it? Please. Please. I beg of you."
"I will do my best. Hurry."
I sat with her for eight days, praying and weeping, as she lay there. She came out of it once, squeezed my hand and whispered, "Remember what I told you. When God sees you cry, He sends you a rainbow."
Today, He sent me two.
