25 letters challenge and same sex marriage

First off let me tell you I have been sick so that I haven’t been  writing but I’m better now so here I am.  To get inspired I went to the daily post blog and found a cool prompt.

The prompt is  the following; There are 26 letters in the English language, and we need every single one of them. Want proof? Choose a letter and write a blog post without using it. (Feeling really brave? Make it a vowel!)  I choose “Y”   so from this —-> point on I will not use that letter in this post.

Can I do it?  we will see.

I don’t watch the news that much  or keep with that stuff so I’m the last to know almost all the time.  About a week ago I found out that on the sixth of this month the most amazing thing in  the  world happened  the state of Florida (where I live) made same sex marriage legal!

This is great news for  some friends of mine! On a personal level however I’m not looking to get married. If I did chances are it would be to a man but you never know who you fall in love with and  it’s nice to now be able to get married to whomever you love.

However I digress  the point I’m making is this change  means that we as a people, as human being, are taking one step closer to treating all people as equals with equal rights. That is the ultimate  dream.

So what do you think? Did I meet the challenge, did I use the letter from where I said I wouldn’t use it?


The Daily Post’s writing prompt: For Posterity: USE YOUR WORDS!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “For Posterity.”

“Use your words  Linsey!” If I had dollar for every single time I heard this growing up I would be writing this post on a yacht in Hawaii. it didn’t take me long to see that the adults were right. I Should use my words but not necessarily for the reasons they think. While it is true the right words can help avoid conflict that is merely  the tip of the iceberg.

The  power of words is near limitless the written word is everywhere. in every beautiful thing that mankind creates. However words do have a dark side in any form they take with as few as three words you can mend a heart and in same breath break it once again. However dark the written word can get one base truth remains; words are way of expression, expression is creativity and creativity is beauty. So If you learn one important life lesson from me today let it be use your words!
