Ragtag Daily Prompt: Can’t

From her throne, Queen Pirouette looked down upon the ambassadors from the Empire. While most believed war with the Empire was inevitable, the Queen decided to stake all of her political clout on preventing this war. She, like many of her subjects, was tired of sending her husband into harm’s way.  She was adamant.

“I will not waver in this matter,” she told the delegation.  “Unless I prevail, thousands more will die.  I can’t deal with that!”

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
