FFfAW-The Power of Love

The political climate was harsh, cold and crisp as the spring air. Riots were breaking out on the streets and Democrats and Republicans were fighting each other in the streets.

The Democrats wanted one candidate and the Republicans wanted another. They each hated the other's candidate.

Windows in businesses were being broken and and thieves were entering the businesses and looting.

It was disgusting to watch the evil take over the streets simply over differing opinions.

Marlee and her daughters and their friends gathered in the streets holding signs of “Love.” Trying their best to break the hatred that had taken over.

Suddenly, they were joined by others that were trying to break the hatred and all were holding signs of “Love.”

Slowly, those that were causing all the problems left the streets and the only ones left were the “good guys.”

That was the day that Love trumped hate. What a beautiful thing!

  1. Your last sentence really summed it up! This was an optimistic and heartwarming take on the unstable political climate right now and I thank you for that, PJ 🙂 Here’s to the day love trumps hate!

  2. Beautiful story. The only place where the word ‘trump’ might have been used in a positive sense in recent times is in the last line of your story.

  3. It is wonderful when people committed to peace, love, and the betterment of society untie for change against ter or and violence. Sometimes it’s the only way people can fight against these situations, to show they are not afraid and that destruction cannot destroy the human spirit.

I would love to read your thoughts...
