This Mom is Charlie

After the dreadful events in France last week, the prompt for your 100 Words is:


I swallow my fear and paste on a smile. Unafraid she marches among millions, her face aglow with joy and determination. My babe now woman, wife, mother and defender. Pride swells as I read the text and stare at her determined face. Arms linked with her family, at five feet even, she stands tall in the crowd. Thousands of miles from home, but this moment she feels snuggled against my heart. This woman who sprang my loins raises her voice, and I hear mine, demanding freedom for all. Je suis Charlie. We are all Charlie and we are unafraid.
