I urge people to join in, comment with your paragraph of fiction to accompany the image. It doesn’t have to follow my story or reflect the same themes. It can be a poem or in a different language (provide a translation please ). Anyone who wants to join in, is welcome. This photograph will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.
Please continue to write however you’re inspired, but add a tag to the beginning of your post if there’s mature content in order to keep Picture it & Write an engaging event for all of our followers.
Blood for blood. The glass bottle felt cool against my fingertips but the raging fire on the cloth seared my forearm. Arching back, I gained momentum for the throw. These government officials thought they could lay to waste our cities and villages. They thought that the citizens would just lay back and accept all the wrong they had done to us. We wouldn’t. We were the people.
The molotov cocktail flew through the air and smashed against the shields of the police officers. They continued to march on, like robots. My father had always told me that violence was not that answer. Eye for an eye and soon the whole world would be blind, he would quote Ghandi. Well, eye for an eye it would be. I’d rather be blind and know that I had fought for my people than to endure watching the authorities tear up my nation without punishment.
