I challenge my readers to write in 200 words or less a story real or fiction- a saga- with a beginning, middle or end.
Here Begins the Story:
Hitler expands his ego. Bombs dropping; smell of death; blood; heart ache; worry about surviving; thoughts of home; marching across Germany; Paris.
The love of his life leached on to him once he stepped off the bus at Ft. Jackson. Three years of emotions released and evaporated as they began their life. Child bearing years brought a daughter and a son only to say good bye to a wife in 1951. More heartaches as father, son and daughter cope in absents of a mother that would never return. Death hurts and not easy to heal. A kind man is left to make difficult choices and leaves his offspring in the care of others.Life marches forward with a new bride and the family eventually reunites. Another child is born and then I make my entrance into the world. Today my mother, another WWII veteran, and my father lives in the hearts in mind and my siblings heart.
