V is for Valorous
I have joined the group "Blogging from A to Z" . This is a a month long challenge to write a short story everyday and each day corresponding to the letter of the alphabet. I have linked up the site - simply click on the name so that you might read any sort of short story from the huge line-up available. The stories are supposed to be short so that many can be read, quickly. Simply a titillation of talent. Happy reading, and thank you for joining me. My sister-in-law is writing under "Vicki's Place" currently her placement is #1259. If you are catching this on my Facebook or as an e-mail follower my number is currently #1324. (people drop out and the numbers contract)
V is for Valorous
There have been scattered terrorists attacks on our country; The United States of America. Initially, we were agape that anyone could have so much hate in them. I am talking about the attacks on foreign soil, our Embassies. The politics in those regions must be horrible to incite people to want to kill us.
We are America. We stand for liberties and justice and especially FOR the People! Why would other countries’ people hate us? We try to help. We, the people, try to help. Actually, when help finally comes it is to the benefit of big business. That aside, why HATE us so much?
Then came the bombings of the Twin Towers. The World Trade Center. Aghast wasn't the word used to describe how the country felt. We were pissed. That building may have held the largest, greediest, corporations in the world, but they were here on OUR soil. The collective thought, just as an ant colony, find those jerks and rip them apart! And, finally we found their leader. Rubbed out. Extinguished. Don’t mess with us, we can come together on some issues and this one is a biggie!
Bombing the Boston Marathon. You want to see old ladies with pitch forks out for revenge?! You are so lucky the cops got to you first. Just to prove how quickly this nation can become a UNION again – we will shut down the whole country if we have to just to find you, you little prick! This is fair warning for anyone – ANY-$%#&ING-ONE! Just watch how quickly we can become an army ant colony and march down your throat. You may get us liberals with baseball bats, nerds with ninja stars, tea partiers with their semi-automatics, or your everyday hunter with their rifles. Know this, we will hunt you like the smarmy, back biting, ungrateful people you are.
We may have become the sleeping giant again. We have allowed some greedy people to make millions off the sorrow of the minions. We are no longer sleeping. We will become valorous in our time of need. See to your own. Do not think sending bombs here will garner you any more money, food or empathy. It will only piss us off and unite us further.
