May Theme

We haven't used a photograph as a writing prompt in a while. There's not going to be a drawing or anything, but you'll still find plenty to write about when you start with this poignant photo.



I've been hard at work on a project for MoMentuM about the murders in Juarez, and I found this photograph one day when I was doing some research. There are hundreds of photographs like it--photographs of pink crosses have become the standard symbol when one is talking about the murders in Juarez. I feel like I should apologize for posting a photograph on such a somber topic. But the stories need to be told. These women need a voice. I hope that as you give them a voice you can connect with them for at least a little bit. It's been an amazing project to be a part of.

Dang, I wrote my submission in the first week. What am I going to do for the rest of May? ;)
 
oh man! I've been away for too long (very sorry). Wish I'd made the liar thing. I'll have to see if I can make these crosses talk to me. Meanwhile, I'm going to go read those posted!
