For whom the bell tolls

Two people had their time marked tonight in the ER.

One was quick - gunned down and left to die, he was already dead. There was nothing we could do for him.

The other will die too, but slower and much more painfully. She came in for what she thought were minor symptoms, and was admitted with the knowledge that she has widespread brain cancer.

I never knew his name. Hers I will never forget.
