84. Tempting Fate
Howard got a text from Margaret.  She had gotten the story wrong.  Felix was dead, but his girlfriend had pulled through. 

Anne exploded when she heard the news.  She complained about the unfairness, how Felix was a good guy.  He should have been the one to survive.  

Howard surprised everyone when he said, “If a good person and an evil person make poor choices they become equal in the eyes of Fate.  We can’t blame God or the universe, or cry about the unfairness of it all, when things go bad for the good person.”

Roy muttered something about Howard being a cowboy philosopher.  Anne sobbed.  My heart ached a little less thinking Felix’s death was neither fair nor unfair.

Today I’ll remember being good doesn’t help the person making poor choices.
