Love Is....

Photo Contest at

This is a photo contest from Write From Karen. Voting begins at 5:00 p.m. U.S. central time February 15th to 8:00 p.m. U.S. central time February 18th.

It was the day after Christmas and my twin sister and I were traveling inside a bus on our way to the city. The bus driver was speeding really fast and trying to overtake other vehicles. I knew the fast and reckless driving will lead to bad things and I was proven right when we collided with another speeding bus. It happened so suddenly that all of the passengers were surprised. My sister tried to protect me by shielding my head from the bus rail with her hands so I came unscathed. I wish I could say otherwise for my sister. There was blood on her temple as her head hit the hand rail a bit hard. She was busy protecting me that she forgot to protect herself.

It was an unselfish act that came naturally. And that is what I think love is.

I have no thought-provoking photograph that can engage a reader. But this entry is about my sister so I thought she should have the limelight. Love you sis!

Princesses Can Be Bullies Too

People think of bullies as someone who are bigger, older. Someone who can physically hurt another and uses that power to bully someone else...
