Flash Fiction Challenge: I LOVE… SOMETHING!!!

a new challenge for everyone!!! 🙂

But that’s as easy as it gets, gang.

(Can you believe this? My Google image search for “love” got about 35 pictures before a dirty one!)

We all love someone or something, but how do we describe that in a character? How do we show that? Well, you’re about to find out. This week, take a random character from the random character generator and put them into a 1000 word scene where LOVE is evident.

World Terror … don’t leave the sunshine – Bop Poem – November 15, 2015

“It is a mistake to refer to Muslim terrorists. I believe no religion endorses terrorism. The essence of all major religions is compassion, forgiveness, self-discipline, brotherhood and charity. All religions have the potential to strengthen human values and to develop general harmony. But individuals twist religious beliefs for their own ends. There are people who use religion as a cover to achieve their vested interests, so it would be wrong to blame their particular religion. Religious divisions have lately become dangerous once more, and yet pluralism, under which everybody is free to practise his or her own faith, is part of the fabric of contemporary society.”  The Dalai Lama

World Terror

and power struggles kill more innocents
in the name of some ideal or religion
sarin gas, hand grenades, un-intelligent bombs
a kamikaze in the night
all in the name of  “right and truth”
