In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Off-Season.”
The children of the planet, 8159-OP, never got to see the beauty of the sun. They envied the children of Earth and all the other children who got to see the magnificent, fiery ball of light. There, they would only see the stars and the moon, as it was always night in the land of 8159-OP. Long ago, when the planet had forests, trees, and plants, it was a beautiful planet. It was beautiful until the people of 8159-OP had evolved and became more advanced. This evolution caused pollution, with effects worldwide. The scientists of the planet had not yet figured out a good way to use energy without creating pollution. All the pollution had caused the sun to block out, and the rotation of the planet stopped. They were stuck in a place where all they could see was the moon. Sometimes evolution is not so good.

Memorial Day became a holiday in the year of 1971 by Congress, after World War 1. It was originally called Decoration Day and it honors those who have died for us. Why decoration? Decoration Day was supposed to be a time when the United States decorated the graves of the dead veterans. Veterans day became a holiday on November 11 in 1938. Veterans Day used to be called Armistice Day. After World War II and the Korean War, it was changed to Veterans day, which honors the American veterans who risked their lives for our safety.
Happy Memorial Day!

Mothers love you with their full heart, even after all the things you’ve done. They are patient, loving, and kind to you. So, that’s why moms need a special day. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers around the world!
Full of your yummy nectar, you dance in the wind,
Leaves on the side and petals on top,
O flower, you twirl,
With grace and poise,
Everlasting in my heart ❤ ,
Reverberating with joy!
