It’s Memorial Day in the U.S., which is considered the unofficial start of summer here. It’s warm and sunny and the beach in front of my home is slathered with people lying on towels or sitting under umbrellas.
- Write a story about the couple sitting under the yellow tent in the center of the photo.
2) See the white sailboat in between the breakers on the left? Write a story about them getting lost at sea.
3) Where is the plane flying in from at the top of the photo? Write a story about someone on the plane – it is his or her first trip to the U.S.
Officially, Memorial Day is a day to remember those who died in military service. Today my local town police posted that they welcomed a WWII veteran to town. Robert was an immigrant who fled France in 1939, was drafted into the U.S. army, and parachuted into Normandy to participate in the liberation of his home country. This week, he will be flying to France to join the 78th D-Day anniversary.
4) Write a story about any aspect of Robert’s experience.
