Every week I think Madison Woods has posted the most challenging photo yet. This week, while Madison is on vacation, the Fictioneer guest host, Susie Lindau, has posted a photo, and I said the same thing. What a nice workout our imagination gets every Friday! You can read other stories based on this week’s photo at her blog, http://susielindau.com/.
Red, White and Blue No More
Wide-eyed, Sam pointed. “I’ve never seen so many flags!”
“Neither have I,” his mother replied.
He noticed she looked sad. “What’s wrong, Mommy? Don’t you think they’re pretty?”
She patted his hand. “Sure they are.”
“My teacher told us flags used to be red, white and blue. What happened to the red and blue?”
“Once, our country had a red party and a blue party. Have you studied the Second Civil War yet?”
“It almost destroyed the country, until finally, a white flag was raised. From that day, it was decided there would be no more red or blue. Only white.”
