Kumar looked wide-eyed at the overbearing adult who was shouting at a very large crowd. He was watching this speaker on a T.V. in a store on a rare trip to the city with his mom. The white Westerner was shouting about America being powerful again. “We have to reclaim our standing as the greatest super-power in the world!” he boasted. Kumar being sixteen could understand the words he used but the concepts were foreign. In his small village, people shared power through humble cooperation. They didn’t own much but they had peace and tranquility. Perhaps he needed POWER.

The prompt this time at The Carrot Ranch asks us to explore the concept of power in 99 words of fiction exactly. I feel that true power is a soft and giving thing and that the true power will win. It will take time but the truth will ascend. Many souls in the lesser developed countries know this with great assurance. Thank you, Charli.
