I am writing this and posting, but know that I’ll have little chance to read and comment on other stories this week. Thursday is my final day with my gorgeous grandson, before I leave Tel Aviv (Friday) and head for Washington, DC for the March on Washington, on January 21st. Something tells me I’ll be a wee bit distracted. I totally understand if you others don’t read my story this week. Thanks to those who do. If you want to read about why I’m headed to DC, this is currently featured in Huffington Post.
I’m grateful each week to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, for her boundless energy and commitment to Friday Fictioneers. If you’d like to learn more or join in, check out her blog Addicted to Purple. Thanks to Dale Rogerson for this week’s photo. As always I welcome honest, constructive feedback; please leave a comment.
Make Us Great Again
From loss we came together. Through passion, we created and found cause and purpose.
Curled in the darkness you took root and grew. We felt hopeful again.
Waiting and counting, we loved you and grew strong again–– knowing that you would change everything and make us whole once more.
Then you came. Out from the darkness, unfurled and precious, you slipped.
And we were there to greet you, with hearts full and grateful.
Hope, passion, and truth, you are.
Defiance and strength, we shall call you.
So we came together, and Marched in your name, and we were whole again.
