For three days, Margarita Brown did not move. Machines, beeping and clicking, moved air in and out of her lungs and provided drops of nutrition to her unused muscles. Just beyond the reach of her perception, there were human voices, crying. Eventually her family’s cries diminished to whimpers as their tears dried on their cheeks. But Margarita was not there. She was far, far away. All she knew about her present state of existence was that it was unfamiliar. She found herself in a strange place, but not a frightening one. She had the calm assurance of a pure heart in the knowledge that she was not deserving of punishment.
