Daily Prompt : Lecture

In response to prompt :  Lecture

According to the historian Stanley Wolpert,   Jinnah( first Governor General Of Pakistan)remained Pakistan’s prodigious leader since the enactment of Pakistan.

In his biography of Jinnah titled, “Jinnah Of Pakistan,” Stanley Wolpert makes the following observation that describes the legacy of Jinnah and his footprint on history :

Few individuals significantly alter the course of history. Fewer still modify the map of the world.  Hardly anyone can be credited with creating  a nation-state. Muhammad Ali Jinnah did all three. 

This is the kind of speech or lecture  given by a non-Pakistani, surely makes Pakistanis proud!

Murphy’s law says, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” Write about a time everything did—fiction encouraged here, too!

The other day I went to take care of some important work that could not wait. I went out, the weather was extremely cold, I was dressed as warm as I could, it felt I should have worn more layers than I did.

When I was walking down my driveway, I saw my neighbor, I called her a few times, finally when she looked up I asked how she was. She seemed not too happy but I thought I was being a good neighbor. She reminded me to hurry along to catch the bus. I knew there still was time and I won’t miss the bus, as my neighbor was busy I left her alone and went to the stop.

I reached my stop and noticed the bus I was waiting for was coming from the opposite direction, this meant I’d have to wait another fifteen minutes outside in this cold windy day. Finally the bus came I got on and got off after five stops.

I was glad I’d have my job done and I’ll be home in a few minutes. I went to the bank the lady asked me about the address of this person, I did not have it. I told her maybe my daughter would know. I called her there was no answer. I called her cell phone still no answer. I was disappointed and decided I’ll take care of it the next day.

As I came out of the bank I saw the bus leaving, oh no I said to myself I’ll have to wait thirty minutes for the next bus.

The wind was stronger than when I first came out of the house, waiting for the bus was difficult, it was cold, my fingers were cold, I did wear gloves, they were not warm enough.

I finally reached home and was glad at least the heating system was working!
