After our insurrection hiatus last week, it’s time for our #ThursdayTen! Using the image above as a prompt, write a ten word story.

Exactly ten words. No more, no less.

No problem, right?


Ready? Here’s mine.

#ThursdayThoughts: No #ThursdayTen today


Sorry, but after the attempted COUP yesterday, an actual insurrection, I am too angry and still trying to process what happened. I don’t have the fun of a ten word prompt in me.

Armed white terrorists stormed our Capitol with the intention of kidnapping and killing members of Congress. And trump incited it and then encouraged them in the midst, telling them he “loved them.” These thugs did things like steal the Speaker’s mail, sit at her desk, and one person yelled out he’d pay someone a million dollars to kill her.

It was horrifying and ugly and disgusting, and completely, completely incited by trump. They found bombs and a long gun on the grounds; they erected a gallows.

And even after that, after these terrorists scaled scaffolding and tried to break into barricaded rooms, members of Congress repeated and reinforced the very propaganda that drove the insurrectionists on the floor of the Congress they’d just desecrated.

It was a terrible, terrible dark day, overshadowing the incredible work done in Georgia to flip the Senate blue. But they didn’t change that. They didn’t change the reality that President-elect Biden won the election and will be president. They didn’t change much of anything, really, aside from their own futures and the futures of the Capitol Police who may have aided them.

That’s it for me. I hope you have a far more peaceful Thursday.
