It is progress. 

Honestly it really is. 

To make progress you destroy what is already there.

The council meeting was quite vocal, the sound decibels in the board room rose to a crescendo as everybody had a point to make.

Lilian sat quietly waiting for her chance to speak.

The chairwoman nodded at her to proceed as soon as there was a break in the arguments.

A demure woman normally this was too important to Lilian.

She started to speak and nearly faltered as all eyes turned towards her. 

A round of applause followed her speech. 

The vote was passed.

Word count: 100


  1. Bravo to her for winning whatever she was fighting for!

  2. I hope the vote was to save the whales! I heard from someone who lived near this mural that it was torn down and a new building replaced it. My first write had a similar slant. It's sad to think they could destroy something so beautiful, but I guess, they see it as something that can be redone. I don't know it was such a surprise and I'm sure a real joy to those who lived there. Well done, Sally!

  3. Dear Sally,

    Sometimes you have to fight for what you believe.
