The Hanging of Miguel Delgado
To be fair, Miguel Delgado was killed by that which he loved, by his dreams and by the goodness of his heart, and his family would say for years that it was the way he would have wanted it. But, of course, what Miguel would have wanted was to live longer and better. His family devised a way to comfort themselves with the thought of divine providence or the will of the man or of cruel fate, whatever they could grab on to, to reduce the pain to a whisper.
