Savannah the voice behind Rejoicing in Hope!

Although there were several pieces in the running for first place, I kept coming back to Savannah’s post time and time again. Only 6 words long, her flash fiction slams into the reader’s heart and steals their breath while they are left wondering what happened. So here it is:

“Single Mother: Now she’s just single.”

Disobey

To me, that word is a trigger! It tells me to do whatever makes it happen, whatever rule I will be breaking because OBEYING is NOT an option. As an adult any mention of either word; obey or disobey, sends a jolt through my body, my teeth start grinding on their own and my scalp starts itching. It is a physical, visceral reaction. Childhood memories of being severely punished for disobeying rush in, and I’m back to that 7-year-old, shy, skinny kid that loved to climb everything with any significant height, hated dolls, loved her bike, and was afraid of speaking up on her own defense.

I can’t remember the last time the word was used towards me, but I know I never used it on my daughters. I truly believe that words have power. They have the power to build up a person and the power to destroy a person. When used on a child you can create an amazing, confident, self-assured member of society or you can create a low self-esteem, unfulfilled, unhappy one.

This is a word that should be on a list of “use with extreme care, these might cause psychological damage to the subject” you know like the warnings on medicines. “Do not use on children under 12, for risk of psychological damage that will last a lifetime.” I seem to be one of the subjects with lifelong effects.

Too much imagination!

Is there such a thing?   I do feel like my mind does go places that your average Joe on the street will not glimpse.  I do believe in all possibilities; all variations, all fantasies.  Somehow if someone has thought about it, told a story about it, or it has happened in someone’s dreams there has to be a grain of reality to it.  So yes, aliens have a 99.9% chance of being real; yes, there might be ghosts, spirits, fairies, shapeshifters, vampires, sprites, demons and angels. I know what I say might not have enough pull with everybody, because I am an over the top feminist/liberal/nut case. But just in case…

Is there really a need to put a limit to what you believe?  I believe in God.  I don’t truly believe in the Bible because old, white men decided to exclude a very important portion of the populous because it didn’t fit their agenda.  As a woman, I believe we should take over or at least go into a strike.  What kind of strike you ask?  I say lets all stop having babies!  I said it!  Let’s see how far will this society of men is going to go without us popping out those babies!  How long will take them to notice, beyond their inflated heads that the population is not growing?  And is it possible that maybe they will get their collective heads out of whatever hole they have them in and start treating women with the respect we deserve. Will this be something that can grow and become an umbrella for all underprivileged of any kind.

Just saying!
