Great Hites Prompt number 43

This weeks Prompt:


This prompt comes from the 1987 Speech given by Ronald Regan at the Berlin wall, and was prompted by a discussion I had with someone about how the generation that is high school right now does not seem to understand the fear that can come from a closed or totalitarian society.

"General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!"

Please feel free to take that quote any way you would like it. This does not have to be a political piece. I promise I will have a lighter Topic next week. I already have a prompt picked out.

All Stories for this prompt are due by Midnight Tuesday March 3rd. Email the text of the story and a recording if you would like me to include it in the podcast to jeffrey dot hite at gmail dot com.

good luck. And don't forget to come out to the site and vote for your Favorite stories this week.

If you would like to read the whole speech or watch it got to http://talkinghites.blogspot.com I have a link and the video posted there.

Don't forget to go out to iTunes or podcast pickle or both and leave a review. It is a great way to let people know about great hites and what you think of it.
