Hello all, I'd like to invite you all to participate in a VERY special contest. It's not a contest per se, because there will be no winner. (Although every story will be linked in my bio) Before you leave, hear me out. It's a project for all of us. There's too much focus after tragedies (specifically Newtown) put on the shooter. They're not the victim, and they're not who we should be focusing on. We should be pouring our hearts out into each individual victim. So I'd like to ask you all to write a story featuring one of the victims. BUT I will only accept happy ending stories. After all that's happened, let these kids live a beautiful life in a story. Make a little girl a princess, or make a little boy the star soccer player who everyone adores. Give those poor children some sort of happy ending. People magazine provided descriptions of most of the children, so I will provide those below, along with the child's name. (You must use their given name, although feel free to add in extra characters). I know this is a sort of strange "contest", but I think they deserve their own little happy endings, even if they're only in stories. I DO NOT want to hear any of your gun control opinions etc. in your piece. This story will not have a place. There is no deadline. I just would like if every name were used-and reused if we get enough participants. Please pass this contest on. Here are the names:
