Really, at the most basic level, it is not crazy at all. The only thing that will ever save the human race is either a common enemy or a common goal. I'm not sure either will ever arrive, but I pray for the common goal of peace. Thanks for writing. ann

I enjoyed reading this. The idea itself is scary and thought-provoking. This story still has me thinking of the chaos that is and the unity that could be. Thank you for sharing!

It is so hard to write good stories in so short of words. You must choose the vocabulary carefully to give the right message, tone, and mood. I love the way you weave this story and the simplistic way you chose to tell it. From the mouths of babes, hey!

Hi P-B-B,
A very familiar plot done in a creative way within a very limited format.

The adding in of the question to this equation made it a fresher proposition than the myriad of movies and books with this theme.

A great job, and all the very best in this contest Pretty blue birds.

With our thoughts we create...
a solution.

Kind regards,
James.

Only, if there are no people who believe it is man's fate to be eradicated by aliens or God's will at work. And I'm not including the insane people depressed and suicidal people, Nihilist, and evil.

Good work

Oh my gosh, you just might have the solution to world peace, my friend! You've done a wonderful job with this 75 word prompt. I take my hat off to you. You pulled off an entire story. Great idea to use dialogue for the whole thing. That allows for unwritten words to be assumed.

Great job, and good luck in the contest,
Rhonda

I think he's right, too! I can't see world peace coming the way we are going at the moment. I thought this was a brilliant reply to a very pertinent question, and an excellent contest entry. Very well done, and good luck in the contest. :) Sandra xx

    Thank you. We can only hope it doesn't take something so drastic as an alien invasion. Hugs.

You've concluded this well-written, dialogue only piece of flash fiction with a very relevant question and answer, Prettybluebirds. It's sad to think that war with an alien planet might be the only way to bring all nations together. Good luck in the contest.

This is usually a bit too short to pique my interest, but I think it might actually be a great plot and theme for a more developed sci-fi novel or at least a novellette. I think it's a great premise and it's deffinitely worth exploring. It might really be the only way people might come together. I still don't know about the US and China in that scenario. Think about it. estory

    Thank you. It probably would make a good science fiction story if one wished to pursue it. Hugs.

I like this fine flash fiction, dialogue only story .... "out of the mouths of babes." It is fun and well written, but for me it misses something the final omfh that would take it too a 5. Good work, though.

    Thank you. I agree with you. I'm not too excited about the story as it seems a bit blah to me. Hugs
