WWC: Looking for Peaceful Waters

This week’s words are One and Water
thanks to Tink over at Pickled Beef.

I’ve trolled through my folders of pictures trying to find some that best depict Tink’s choice of topics for this challenge. In the background I’m listening to the pundits analyze the latest distraction to the issues our country is facing. In my mailbox today were two more pieces of propaganda, both of which probably cost an ungodly amount of money in an effort to win my vote. And in the mean-time the clock ticks seconds to minutes to hours to days.

If you’ve been visiting Back in the Day for awhile, you may have seen this collection of pictures taken over the past year. This home sits squarely across from the entrance to our church. Every Sunday as we pull out of the parking lot, this is what we see. It is a stark reminder for me, that lives are in the balance. So my choice to depict One are these two pictures, taken one year apart.

One

and on a more peaceful note…Water

    Very touching use of the number 1, Gawilli. Well done.

  2. Tink Says:

    That sign is chilling…

    But what a fitting example of the number one. One soldier killed out of many. One soldier is already too many.

  3. Molly Says:

    Yes, looking for peaceful waters…

    The one hurts as it should. The water is very smooth. The surface molecules have zero gravitational potential energy. The one should help stop the war … now. Next Tuesday is the day to work on that stop.

    One of many indeed. Powerful pictures.

    How sad…I know others have said one should have been enough to help stop the war, but really, it shouldn’t have been started in the first place. The whole thing is like a weight around our collective necks. I don’t understand how so many people can be against something, and yet it still continues…
    Beautiful photos.
