One of society’s most celebrated writers was O. Henry. Readers enjoyed how he always had a little twist to his stories and how he was always interested in the lives of common people and their struggles. When William Sydney Porter (O. Henry’s real name) passed away, his last words to his nurse were: “Mary, pull up the shades. I don’t want to go home in the dark.” Who does? I don’t. I don’t think you do either. None of us wants to go home in the dark.
