About two weeks ago I received a Facebook message from my favorite editor Shonell Bacon. Shonell, Jennifer Coissiere and Pachet Burson have been hard at work writing over at www.Snaps1000Words.com. These wonderful women asked me to join them.
I’m excited because I get to share my photography habit (I say habit because I’m not quite a hobbyist yet) and my love for writing. The challenging part of this is that it plays off the old saying a picture is worth a thousand words. We have to find or snap a picture that inspires us to write a one-thousand-word short story or personal essay.
Today my first piece was posted. It is a bit different than what you’ve seen me write. What many people don’t know is that I love science fiction, speculative fiction and fantasy novels. More than likely, my short stories over at snaps will give you a chance to meet the creative thinker in me.
So without further adieu, I invite you to read The Rocks Will Cry Out.
The Propaganda Against Christianity started the war.
Everyone wanted rights—civil rights. They fought for our entitled human rights, those rights we are afforded because we are intelligent enough to argue our position. Same-sex marriage rights. Rights for descendants of African slaves. Rights for Indians. Science made us humans, so we are all the same.
Christians wanted to legislate morality. They wanted to tell people who, how and when to love. They wanted to make sure that every child lived even if the mother would die during delivery or if the child was a product of incest—the child had rights, too. The Christians lost. Morality, the leaders of World Government ruled, could not be legislated.
