Every Wednesday we get our weekly picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, graciously provided by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. There’ve been reruns of old prompts for a few weeks now, which is a nice break for the ‘founder-fictioneers’ because they can re-post their old stories. Newcomers like me get an interesting glimpse into the Friday Fictioneers’ past. The reason for the reruns is Rochelle’s third book, As One Must, One Can, which has a deadline in July.
The task is to write a story: beginning, middle, and end, in 100 words or less. You can find all the Fictioneers’ stories when you click on the Froggy. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.
Some of my esteemed colleagues blame our current predicament on the people, calling you sheep that follow the herd. Others complain about voters’ increasing selfishness. I say both are wrong.

“The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one.*” You all know that phrase. But only respect for each other, for the needs of the one, enables us to work together, to make us One People.
Not perfect, but it would do for a first draft.
