A new beginning

He tried hard, desperately hard, to survive, seeking support from his community, his religion, his people. Once, he had been completely invincible. But then as strong hands came together holding up the proud flag ... orange and green .. he died, forever. Where there is unity, strife has to die. He died because they wouldn't accept him.


*************

Today's prompt was 'They said he died because they wouldn't accept him'. I refuse to mourn on such a happy day and so decided to celebrate the end of strife and all else that's not well with our country.


HAPPY REPUBLIC DAY!!!!


And with that we come to the end of our week long 55 festival at Marathon Bloggers. What a blast it has been.

  2. Very cheery take! I wanted to go on a similar track, but the only idea I got was the one I'd already used, with Despair.
