This post is a themed writing project challenge taken from Jenny Matlock from off on my tangent.
Jenny says we can use UP to 100 words (not including the prompt) to tell our story. It can be fact or fiction. The only restriction is: The prompt must be left intact WHICH MEANS you cannot split up the words in the prompt.
Below is my story, the prompt is in BOLD italics…
I remember eating lunch watching my mother sob as she sat on the couch in front of the TV.
In the early afternoon November 22, 1963 mothers, people everywhere doing the same thing.
A bright young soul taken from us, his leaving so unexpected it cast a glaring spotlight on the vulnerability of an entire nation.
My mother held us tight that cold November day.
I stood frozen in front of the flickering images on my TV , a sunny September 11, 2001 knowing I was witnessing something far worse.
My first thought was gathering my loved ones to keep them safe and protected.
But I knew that wasn’t possible.
