My chest swells like a hundred year flood, reclaiming the breath that was knocked out of me when I hit the ground. I stutter on the exhale, unable to form words. My daughter helps me to my feet as two men race down the street. One, my assailant. The other, my hero. The second man catches up with the first. Tackles him. Karma.
Police arrive. "What happened?" they ask.
"I was attacked."
