Once Upon A Time…

For Friday Flash, I decided to do something a little differently. I’m asking you to help me come up with my prompts.

I would like you to leave a comment and tell me how you met me — but I want you to LIE. That’s right, just make it up.

Then, I’ll take your comments and turn them into my next flash fiction stories.

Ready? GO!

    Oooh, great idea. We met along the Leech River in Licking Flames County. My foot as caught in a snare and you flew in on your gossamer wings and freed me. I was amazed that such a delicate creature had the courage to free a giant like myself.

      Ah, I love it! I’m going to have to put my fairy thinking cap on for this one.

    I met Shellii Proffitt Howells in Washington DC on Wednesday, August 28, 1963, the year before I graduated from college at the March on Washington, a march Jobs and Freedom. “The Great March on Washington” was one of the largest US political rallies for human rights history and called for civil and economic rights for African Americans. Martin Luther King, Jr., standing in front of the Lincoln Memorial, delivered his historic “I Have a Dream” speech advocating that racial harmony should prevail upon the march.

    The march was organized by a group of civil rights, labor, and religious organizations under the theme “jobs, and freedom” Estimates of the number of participants varied from 200,000 to 300,000, with 80 percent being black.

    The march is credited with helping to pass the Civil Rights Act (1964) and motivating the Selma to Montgomery marches which led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act.

    Shelli and I were fervor civil rights advocates and do gooders. We were young, caring and idealist. We were touched by MLK Jr and inspired by his non-violent attempts to change for the better.

      Excellent, Linda. I think we’ve held onto those ideals, haven’t we?

      1. Linda

        Indeed, we are still idealists with maybe a more realism mixed in.
