I finished writing a novel last year. Called Bedloe. A pretty damn good one some say. Never published. Par for the course. It was a mix of satire, realism and socio-political commentary. It’s the story of widower John Bedloe and his sixteen year old son, both of the lowly Associate class. “Socees.” It’s the story of their life, if we can call it that, under a tyrannical oligarchy in the year 2040. A tyranny which began to crystalize in 2016 with the election of one Ransom B. Conover, a serial grifter, to the Presidency of The United States of America. Sound familiar?
Anyway, here’s what Bedloe was so right about. In the book he says; “we should take all the statues of generals and soldiers off of the horses and just leave the horses. Or, if we’re going to have statues of heroes, we should have statues of mothers. Nurses.”
I am reminded of this because we are now daily witnessing selfless heroism on a grand scale. These are people who are rushing headlong into a burning building with the knowledge that they might never come out. And yet they do it. Me? I’m afraid to go to the corner grocery.
I have such deep admiration for these people, these nurses and doctors, who are treating people who, in many cases, are close to death having been stricken down by a highly contagious virus.
Here in New York a heartfelt tribute took place last Friday. At seven PM people stood at their open windows, on their balconies, their terraces, in the park, in the street – wherever they were – and they clapped and cheered. We were all cheering for these wonderful brave angels of mercy. For two minutes all up and down the whole of New York City the applause and cheers for these amazing courageous people rang out.
Bedloe was right; There should be statues all over the world to these heroes.
