100 Word Wednesday: A Changed World


Sitting on the floor of a dark cold cell, the day certainly did not start out this way. I woke up this morning to paddling steps and shouts. I opened my front door to find police putting barricades along the street. I rubbed my eyes, “What’s going on?”

The officer pushed me back inside my home, “Please remain inside, ma’am. No one is to leave their house until I get the clear signal.”

“But I deserve to know what’s going on. It’s my right.”

He spun me around and slapped metallic cuffs around my wrists, “That right is long gone.”
