Ah! Another Challenge, Word Prompts

Classic Movie — The Well

Another prompt and or challenge from Saturday Mix AND see here for the instructions, this week we are dipping our toes into the pool of OPPOSITES. Our challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. You will need to use the two opposing words in your response –
Our words this week are:
– unite and divide
– hope and hopeless

The above words, a challenge of four opposing words that come together remind me of a black and white classic movie recently published on YouTube. One of those edge of the seat stories, full of emotion; a story about how a people divided come together and unite in a crisis. A tale of hopelessness that wrought hope to a community in a racially mixed American town.

A 5-year-old black girl falls unnoticed into a hidden, forgotten well on her way to school. Having nothing better to go on, the police follow up a report that the child was seen with a white stranger, and rumors run wild.

If your time prevents you from viewing this lively and exciting account created in 1951, but so relevant today, add it on your bucket list for later.
