FOWC with Fandango — Series

FOWCWelcome to January 12, 2021 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “series.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.

      I’m surprised more reporters don’t break down like that. I sometimes do just watching their reporting.

        I agree with you. I’ve wondered, at times, how they can stand it day after day… any of the ones who are on every day. I’ve seen her with a similar human reaction on another topic. And, actually, I don’t think she is featured five days a week. I have to say, I love her.

          I found the other time I mentioned, although this isn’t video footage.

          ……..

          “Thinking about that family and what they will have to tell this child, who has no idea why his mother and father are not there, because somebody hated immigrants,” said Sidner, fighting back tears. “How do you explain that?”

          Sidner believes that President Trump’s racist rhetoric is emboldening white supremacists. “When that language is used by our leaders, it spreads,” said Sidner. “Hatred can grow and then turn into not just words, but then actions, and then become deadly.”

          Sidner is haunted by some of the stories she covers, like the El Paso shooting. She said, “That will forever bother me.” But she also finds inspiration in the perseverance of those most affected by hate crimes.

          “The families that I talk to, they give me life,” she said. “I see that they’re able to function. They’re able to move forward in their lives. They have no choice. They’re still here. That fills me.”

          United Shades of America airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on CNN.
          (I don’t think that series has been on lately, but I usually like it.)
