The newest entry in Velvet Verbosity’s 100 Word Challenge, for Examine. And it fits right in with the Clifton Saga, again! I was properly admonished—I must also include reference links.

“You have to examine your life today and before your decision.”

“I know what it is. I need to go back to my wife and kids.”
“Here, let’s pray for peace and their forgiveness.”
