The bread of Women

October, 1789
A recent drop in harvest crop - such that of grain- has been scarce throughout the land! Women from around the country have been brought around and protested - yes, protested- for more grain rations! After being rejected at the town hall, a massive protesting group of women marched 19 Kilometres to the Royal Family home of Versailles! The king has been put onto pressure by the people, and a revolution has begun! In an October Day, the King made his way back to the heart of the revolution but were only to become face to face with the angry mobs of women holding the heads of men and the spears of soldiers! The King had no other choice but to submit to the pressure of the women of France!

Life has become scary. Almost worth dying instead of having our heads roll. Only time can tell when we may see the day again with a peaceful street and no seems of terror reigning over our rooftops…
