  1. Greetings!
    Great use of the prompt, but of terrible tragedies and a sad reminder of how little changes over the years. I wonder if tightening a few of the sentences and adding some white space between lines would amp up the tension of each timeline?
    I’m curious. Where does your imagination take her in 2376? Does she finally turn the tables?
    Love the title! 🙂 TMWR

  2. It just goes to show us that some people’s bodies are in the 21st Century but their minds are somewhere in the dark ages. Both men and women suffer because those who judge believe differently and think anyone who believes differently should be punished. God help anyone who’s judged and punished by them. Their minds are warped. Good writing, Lore. —- Suzanne
