‘Bird on a Wire’ By Kaitlyn Tovado

In a dystopian world where the government believes the cure for world unrest is to mold each citizen into the perfect size of 5’8” only those struggling with mental health issues are immune to the procedure. For a while at least. This story gives a view into a world where wires run through bodies in the hopes of perfection. Let the modification bring on world peace! Only at the cost of your body that is.
