There she sat, days on end.

Adam Cordum,

There she sat, days on end. An older black woman full of a lifetime of stories, experiences, and moments of mistrust of the medical system. She sat, and spoke, and commanded attention with each breath. She sat, and waited, for the best place to take care of her recovery. She sat, but with her words and attitude stood tall and proud in the face of a system that had wronged her too many times.
