A world in need of healing

by Venky

(Photo Credit: Dale Rogerson)

Stubbornly disregarding the recommendations of the sincere real estate agent, Venky moved into the semidetached property which was in crying need of repair. Come to think of it, the whole world seemed as if it required some prompt and urgent fixing. Instead of dismantling barriers between nations, walls were proposed to be erected; instead of respecting green canopies that breathe life, holes were being punched into the ozone layer.

Venky latched the door closed and observed that the panel of glass was splintered and taped over in an unprofessional and hasty manner.

Splintered hopes, shattered glass!

This is a great analogy to the way many countries try to fix environmental problems (if at all): stick some tape on it and hope it holds things together.

Really liked the way you have used the prompt to raise awareness about issues plaguing the world and our half-hearted attempts to mend it.

The world needs healing and so does the property in terms of fixing. good take on the prompt.

Great use of the prompt to talk real! This is hardly a fiction. Very well done. I love it. (Thanks from threefoldtwenty dotcom)
