This week over at Carrot Ranch (www.carrotranch.com) the prompt was to write a 99 word (no more, no less) story about a protest and go where the prompt led. This pedometer geek considered several scenarios before deciding on a BOTS (based on a true story) tale.
Julia wanted to be inducted into her school’s National Honor Society.
Each year she saw outstanding upperclassmen selected for the honor. As a junior, she watched her classmates and the seniors get chosen one by one.
The school administration and teachers were shocked when one senior refused in protest over a blatant prejudice against another student. Apparently, the seniors knew that the student was treated unfairly, making a pact to reject the honor; however, only Jerry had the strength of character to protest this injustice.
How they found out was never revealed, but it forever changed the school’s policy.

Check out all the stories about protests over at Carrot Ranch. I wonder if any of the Word Wranglers will have written about an extra hard exam, also known as a pro-test. Now, to check them out for myself.
