RE: A Pop-Up WeWrite Contest! - Prompt: The Sandwich

in Freewriters7 months ago

That final image, the ending, is awesome and spot-on. Touche! I wish I had thought of it!
And this is articulated so well, a theme that most of the entries to this contest share: It's funny how it's the small things that tip the scale of intolerance to the point of no return. If I don't do this today, one of us won't be here to wake up tomorrow. Once respect is lost, and you pull back the thin veneer, you'll see the foundation has crumbled.
Well said!
I can't imagine leaving behind everything but the clothes on my back, but I love this story.

Thank you so much @carolkean for stopping by and viewing my post. I appreciate your kind words of support and encouragement. So glad you liked my ending.

We see things through a different lense.

Yes, you can walk away. You can replace material things. Many abused women do exactly that. Some in a hurry in the middle of the night fearful for their lives; others plan it.

I wish so many would take this route I chose to enlighten. I know a few who did. They are alive to tell their stories.

Take care, and have a great day.

Yes, material things can be replaced. How many refugees have fled times of war with nothing--leaving bank account, homes, furniture, treasured belongings behind? To escape with your life is to keep the most important thing of all. Thank you for the reminder. :)
