"There’s something I wanna tell you. After I got shot, you wanna know the very first thing that entered my mind before I blacked out? Coins. That’s what popped into my head. I am a coin in the United States army. I was minted in the year 1980. I’ve been punched from sheet metal. I’ve been stamped and cleaned. My ridges have been rimmed and beveled. But now I have two small holes in me. I’m no longer in perfection condition. So there’s something else I wanna tell you. Right before everything went black, you wanna know the very last thing that entered my mind? You."
