100 Word Challenge for Grown ups – Week#58

Since the new laws have been put into place there are no public places. Everything belongs to the government. If I take it I will definitely go to jail. These days you are guilty to proven innocent. Is it worth it? At least in jail I’ll be fed. But, my freedom. What freedom, that’s long gone. We waited too long to fight.

  1. Interesting take on this theme! I am concerned about freedom too. I hope we still have some a decade from now.

  2. Great perspective on those 4 words — I would love to hear the background and the results of this story. Love your 100WCGU — Thanks for posting this!

  3. O-M-G. The bottom line is so strong: At least in jail I’ll be fed—so sad.

  4. But in jail, will they feed you apples?

  5. Great take on the prompt, really got me thinking. Love the last line ‘We waited too long to fight.’ Sometimes I wonder if we’re halfway there already…

  6. Hints of Bradury’s Farenheit 451. Well done
