Writing - Living and Making A Difference

Just after daylight
We walked.
And while doing so
Snapped photos of God's glorious creation.
Then later
We took a break from our writing and
Hubby's online teaching--
Went out to lunch.
We went to Chick-Fil-A,
And we're glad we did.
Long lines of congested traffic
And people all over the place.
Professionals, families with children and workers taking a break--
All rushing to Chick-Fil-A.
And even though many major news networks
Refused to report:
Crowds all over America
Flocked to Chick-Fil-A yesterday.

And so did we--
As did many Americans
In support of freedom of speech.

We must write
And live
And make a difference
As other writers have done before--
Such as Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
"For a country to have a great writer is like having a second government.
That is why no regime has ever loved great writers, only minor ones." --Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
