fiction 1 comment challenge: Decide

The hard decision


Finally. The day I had waited for for ages. I was going to pick out my very first dog. I entered, and immediately took notice of about five dogs. I spent hours there, trying to decide which one was best for me. Suddenly, the manager yelled, “The shop is closing in five minutes!” I panicked! I loved all the dogs. I wanted to take home them all, but I could only have one! What should I do? At the last second, I decided. I was going to start an animal shelter of my own. I would save the lives of many animals, and have the joy of working with them too. It was perfect. All the dogs in the shop went to a better home that day. To my home.

“Sometimes the things you love the most are the things you need to give up in order to live”

“Sometimes, the things you love the most are the things you need to give up in order to live.”

“If you want to be on the gymnastics team, you need to be able to do a back tuck!,” Celma called. I was scared to do it. I had been dreading back tucks for as long as I could remember. I really wanted to be on the level 6 competition team. But a back tuck was one of the requirements. I just couldn’t do it. I had to! But I just couldn’t. Tryouts were tomorrow, and I was dreading it. I went to bed with hopes of magically getting on the team overnight. Of course, it wouldn’t happen. I just had to hope for the best. Celma told me I could do it, but I wasn’t so sure.

    It was the day of tryouts. I walked into the gym. My home. I loved the gym. It seemed like it was “my place.” But it wouldn’t be mine if I didn’t make level 6. I would be kicked out forever. It was hard to imagine my life without gymnastics. I had to make the team. My team.

What can I do?

My name is Sirre.
Yes, I know. It’s very unusual.
I like it a lot.

Sirre is a special name.
You’ve probably never heard it before.
But that doesn’t matter.

People sometimes tease me.
For no apparent reason.
Or for my weird name.

It’s not very fair.
I do not like it at all.
But what can I do?

Why Your Vote Matters


Your Vote Matters.
It all starts with one.
One turns to two, two votes turn into more, and soon you have thousands of votes, each one contributing a little bit to the long term cause.
If one person doesn't vote, that one person will turn to two.
Two will turn to more, and soon you have thousands, each one decreasing the chance that the results will make you happy.
Little things can turn into big ones, from one simple vote to thousands, even millions of votes.
Raise your voice, because your opinion matters.
YOU matter.
