Friday Fictioneers – 3/14/14 – Bridge To Insanity

Friday Fictioneers hostess, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields will welcome you into the Friday Fictioneers group if you’d like to take your best shot at creating a 100-word story prompted by this picture. The photo is courtesy of Adam Ickes.

My story is below the photo.



So, Mr. President, you’re having a recurring dream?” the doctor asked.

Yes.  At least a dozen times this past year. I’m walking down a long, narrow, wooden bridge. Ahead I see the pavilion where a peace treaty signing is scheduled. I know they’re all there, waiting for me.  But I can’t get there!”

Why not?”

Because the damn bridge keeps growing longer with every step I take!”

And you think the dream means something particular?”

Of course.  And that’s what’s driving me insane.”


It means there’s never going to be an end to war.”

    1. Thanks. In all honesty, it is absolutely the only idea I could come up with, and it jumped into my mind when I first saw the picture. So I figured why fight it.

    1. I was just thinking that same thing as I was writing it. When people talk about “world peace” as if it were something actually attainable, I have a hard time relating, because I know it is totally unattainable until Jesus comes back and takes over total control.

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
