2021-Flash-01 - "Dawn"

Mankind has always attached special significance to this brief but powerful word. It could be the dawn of a new day, a new year, a new idea, a new life … the possibilities are endless. 
As we happily bid a not-so-fond farewell to 2020, we have hope that the New Year will bring a successful distribution of the new vaccines, put an end to our isolation and the ravaging of lives and families, and restore some of the life we have all missed so much these past endless months. 
It is our heartfelt hope that each of us will experience our own personal “dawn” in this coming year.  We invite you to dream big and share your stories in this first contest of the New Year.  
Good luck!

    Sharing a Post

    Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
