Sacrifice, for VJ’s Weekly Challenge
Some people give their lives to it, And others never do–– Conditions never calling for Rash actions to ensue. I’ve held onto my life because Fate never asked me to Immolate myself to save Child, soldier, Jew, Ensuring that I remain here Securely in life’s queue.
I don’t think sacrifice has been anything I’ve had to do much of in my life, short of occasionally knowingly giving someone the last pork chop or the biggest piece of cake. Perhaps this is because I had no children.
I can think of only one big potential sacrifice I made in my life and that is something I will not speak of, mainly because people it might affect are still alive. So, in lieu of writing a personal essay or poem on this topic, I invite you to read an article about the top ten most inspiring self sacrifices. You can go HERE to read it.
