My Lion Makes Me BraveTop Story - January 2023
The world was at war and had been for a year. It began in September 1939 when Germany invaded Poland. We all know the story, but it’s important to understand that by the time the Blitz started in, the war had not been going on for all that long at all. But we were somehow a threat to Nazi Germany, even though we were just trying to get by and live our lives. Did you know that civilians made up almost three times the number of casualties compared to soldiers for the allied forces? They don’t talk about that enough in schools nowadays.

It only takes 47 steps to walk around the south side of the psych ward at this hospital. It wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t feel so much like a void. The walls are so white that I think if I wanted to, I could just disappear into them. They look like vanilla cake batter that has been speckled with blood stains from when Garrett cut himself or when other Garrett, the schizophrenic one, pooped himself and smeared it on the wall of the boy’s wardroom after his mother visited and told him it was his fault that his brother was dead . There is no artwork, no real colour aside from white, nothing. It’s just emptiness. Thankfully the floors aren’t white, not completely anyway. They are scuffed-up and covered in dried blood and crumbs from last night’s snacks.
