girl-570832_640Because she favored loose flowing clothes, wore her hair long, loved beads and dangly earrings, and laughed more than most, people thought she was a flyaway kind of woman. They thought she was a woman who was not very smart or practical who could easily be taken advantage of and played for a fool. Little did they know she was very intelligent and a member of Mensa, an international organization for people with IQ’s in the top two percent of the general population. Maybe she was a bit flighty and frivolous and seemed not to be serious or concerned about anything they considered important but those were people who didn’t really know her.  That was okay with her and didn’t bother her at all because she knew and liked who and what she was and that was all that mattered.

Crowds

For years we were told that if we worked hard and were determined to finish the course set before us we would graduate and stand far above the crowd and ready to shape the new exciting future. We did what we were told and obeyed the rules believing we will be special and unique leaders, people to be noticed, looked up to and followed. Well, here we are graduating and blending in with the crowd like some berserk scientist went mad in his laboratory making Barbie and Ken clones.

The Victory

She knew her family and friends would see what she had done as giving up the perfect life of riches and privilege for one of defeat and hardships. She had done what had to be done and it was not a defeat. She had lost many battles but she was determined to win the war and if that meant facing the unknown so be it. Today she was taking that first step toward victory. With trembling and tears, determination and courage, she took her kids and left.
