September Writing Challenge – Windows to the Soul

Here’s my flash for today – Windows to the Soul.

Her eyes had seen too much devastation for what limited time she’d been alive.  Eleven was too young to be subjected to a lifetime of war, famine and strife.  She’d never known peace.  Never known youth and had never known innocence.

Through the course of her very short life, she aspired to bring about the change to her country that would allow those of the next generation to know all the things that she did not.

She died trying to better her world, not for herself, but for all the others living in oppression.
