Resist fear

Do you remember the young Chinese man standing off a column of tanks in Tiananmen Square in 1989?  I do.  Do you remember the Polish workers who followed Lech Walensa?  I do.  Do you remember the East Germans tearing down the Berlin Wall?  I do.  Do you remember Viola Liuzzo?  I do.  When I see their faces I think, they are all our children.  I am an old bat and they are young.  They could be my grandchildren.  They could be, given a little space to grow in, themselves. 

Today’s prompt:  Resist fear.  Write, sing, paint, dance, weave, whisper, stand still . . . it is your time.  Create.

    The Color Blind Angel. Never heard about her before, so I had to read the article about her on Wikipedia.
    The world needs clever and brave color blind people.
