Flash Fiction: Soldiers

SoldiersPeeking out from the hotel room, I could see stretches of soldiers for miles lining the streets. How is it, I wondered, that a day to celebrate liberation and freedom from oppression and military rule, is centered on a parade starring the people who oppressed us in the first place?

Why were the streets flooded with children and parents waving flags and eating cakes celebrating?

Couldn’t anyone else see what was wrong with this picture?
