My Greatest Fear

Post updated from last year on the last night I spent with my mother in 1996 before she passed away from cancer. The daily prompt, at that time, was to write about what you fear the most.

In fact, you grew up miles apart and have no common geographic ground. I moved over two hundred miles away from my home town to start a new life… Continue reading Rule Breaker
