The Right Thing  
Title: The Right Thing
Character: Harrison Bergeron
Rating: G
Words: 100


Harrison Bergeron always tried to do the right thing. He was polite to elders and kind to children. He told the truth even to his own detriment, such as when his grades rose and he had to have his band readjusted; Harrison enjoyed being smart, but he knew right from wrong.

When Dr. Eisenstock suggested he go to the Head House, Harrison knew that was illegal, but how wrong could it be if his doctor recommended it?

Harrison never knew how right it was. Years had passed and he was long dead when his country became free because of it.
