“You discover a letter on a path that affects you deeply. Today, write about this encounter. And your twist? Be as succinct as possible.”
I am a walker.
I follow the same path day in and day out.
I look straight ahead.
I do not look up, down, left or right
I stumbled while walking today.
I looked down and there was a large, tattered brown envelope.
I picked up the envelope.
I opened the envelope.
I was surprised — inside was a lottery ticket with a note attached.
I read the note.
- “This winning lottery ticket valued at $300,000,000.00 given to you in appreciation for your family’s acts of kindness to so many people.” Anonymous.
I checked the address on the envelope.
I knew the family.
- What should I do?
I wondered what someone else would do.
- What would you do?
