It has been a rough couple of days but I am still here

“My cousins traveled and I wanted to travel so I hopped on a freight train and started traveling. I was 15 years old and have been doing this for 15 years. I have been to Montreal, Quebec, Toronto, Mexico. I was locked up in Guatemala and extradited to the US. It wasn’t that bad. I have met so many people. I like the Crazy Horse monument and Mt. Rushmore. I have been in Mobile for two days. I had my leg almost blown off in Afghanistan with an IED. The injury on the front side is from a freight train. I had a young puppy named Maggie and her collar broke and we were stuck between a Union Pacific and Amtrak. She freaked out and ran towards the train and when I ran to catch her I snagged myself and got smacked by the train. It caught my backpack and dragged me and my leg got caught under the wheel and it cut into by leg. I am still alive and Maggie survived. She is living in Wisconsin now with my friend Pat. I was more worried about the dog than my leg. The friend I have been traveling with is having kidney failure and is in Mobile Infirmary right now. He has been in bad shape for a while and I am waiting for the call. I should call, but I don’t want to get the news. I am the one who will have to call his dad. It has been a rough couple of days, but I am still here. Do you have a cigarette?”
