Writer's Statement

Too many people ignore the common symptoms of a heart attack until it is too late to receive help. This haiku and picture symbolize how delicate life is and how important it is to keep your body healthy. This image represents how people should not wait to receive help when they are suffering from signs of a heart attack.
