Weekend Writing Prompt — Another Brick in the Wall

60c94531-4cb2-456f-bccf-da43004c146dParents on one side, children on the other. A wall with no gap in between.

Will the thawing of the hard, evil hearts who support this inhumanity ever be seen?

The president is digging in his heels on his wall and doubling down.

While he gleefully puts hundreds of thousands out of work in his government shutdown.

Lady Liberty must surely be crying.

The foundations upon which our great country was founded are dying.

Yet Trump’s political cronies are providing cover and protection.

What voters must do is voice our rejection.

(Exactly 91 words)

Also for these one-word prompts: Nova’s Daily Random Word (children), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (wall), Daily Addictions (gap), and Word of the Day Challenge (thawing).

    He is turning this country into one of those shithole countries he so despises. That’s some achievement!

      I hope it’s not already too late to take our country back.
