Welcome Home

Before The War we all had dreams; those dreams are but grey mists of memories as we reconcile what war is, what it has done, of so many souls lost.

Us. Them. No winners.

We girls were asked, “Would you spare a night for dancing? Men war weary are looking for a nice conversation, a dance with a pretty girl.”

Our duty to our country, war veterans, ourselves? Welcome them home with open arms – and we did. Many of us also opened our hearts, were swept off our feet, and married these men.

Regrets? Many – but none of that dance.

Written for: Week 16 – 100 Word Wednesday

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use – Links provided 🙂
  3. I have not enabled automatic pingbacks due to a plethora of spam messages attempting to link up. Do feel free to also continue posting your links and I will enable your pingbacks as I check my blog. Thank you for understanding!!
  4. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I’ll try to read them all, but I can’t post your submission in the Weekly Windup if you haven’t posted before the end of the weekend but I’ll do my best to catch ’em all!
  5. Have fun! I enjoy reading your challenge submissions 🙂

    1. Thank you kindly! When I saw this image, all I could think about were the men returning from war — the welcomes on leave with dances, conversations, and time away from the monotony or atrocities of their jobs. Thank you again for stopping by to read, and reply, on my short tale 🙂
