Refugees

Challenge

Challenge Deadline: 20 Jul 2018

Anyone paying attention to the news knows that there are mass refugee migrations taking place around the world. People of the Arab nations are fleeing into Europe and Russia, and Hispanics of all stripes are crossing into the US. In all cases this has caused massive upheaval to ensue, and much of the news has been bad.

So, here's what I want you to do for this challenge. Write a story about refugees -- human, animal, spirit, or alien; foreign, domestic, or extraterrestrial; real-to-life, science fiction, or fantasy. Just for a change of pace, try to put a positive spin on the migration, make it something joyful or celebratory, show the good side of people rather than the bad. Your viewpoint can be at the macro level, observing the event as if on high, taking in all the details. Or you can get down into the nitty-gritty and focus on just a few characters or families. The choices are up to you.

You have a month for this challenge, but that's no reason to wait to the last minute to write.
