Brian Hartman's Web Page First Steps


"First Steps" is the story of Dave Riggler's first psychotherapy session. He's a handicapped teenager, who uses a wheelchair, in therapy (he thinks) because his school wants him to walk on a walker, but he doesn't want to. "First Steps" is a story about being handicapped, identity, and self-determination, for better or worse.

Can one man raise his voice against the system? Should he even try? "The Protest" is a short story about government oppression, bioethics, and personal courage.
