Hey, what you doin’ standing there? What, you wanna know my name? We’ll, I’m Pedro Cruz, and I’ve just been shot. Yeah, I was shot, smarty, that’s why I’m bleeding! You wanna know who I am? I’m just a poor man from a poor barrio with poor friends. Wanna know why? Because I’m a loser, that’s why. That’s why he did this to me, you know. I thought he was my friend, guess not...nobody in the barrio is your friend. You gotta learn that, but I guess you never do until something bad happens to you. You know kid, I may be dumb, but I know somehtin’ you must never forget: toughen up kid, toughen up.
