Vince scattered the tattered remains of his life on the river walk, everyday, for thirty odd years at the crack of dawn.

He was never fined for littering. In fact, a police officer simply watched him from above. His name was Angel and he was not his father's son...

Many faces, from countless places, sometimes picked up the one-hundred dollar bills he'd thrown down.

At night, Vince collected what reminded and burned it, scattering the ashes on the capitol's doorsteps.

On the thirty first day of the twelfth month, the anniversary of WWIII, he shot himself.

Hail Godless America!

    Good one, Olivia. Sad. Also, you might want to edit remind into remained. You're writing always amazes!
