Prompts Weekend Challenge – SECURITY

Posted by Sue W

Sunny days filled with warmth, blue skies and a giant fluffy dog at your side, security. Windows secure, doors locked, porch cam on and in service with direct feed to the monitoring company, definitely security.

The care and concern of a loved one. The knowledge that they will always come when needed or wanted, heart and soul security.

Selfless men and women who protect our dignitaries and others while performing their roles within the public eye, security; it says so on their leather jackets or the placard hanging from their strong necks.

Flashing blue lights, sirens surrounding fleeing figures, angry voices, handcuffs and fingerprinting. Security, it’s the law!

The hub of public safety officials, policemen and police women. An office, building or perhaps a large canvas tent where they work together to process a suspected criminal, is called Security.

The country’s care of our disabled and elderly, Social Security. The defense of our country’s people, our way of life and our freedom, National Security.

The knowledge that body, family, pets and home are safe, well and where they should be, a sense of security.

Bank vaults and bullet-proof vehicles offer financial security to patrons and employees all.

2020 to present – Global Insecurity

    I think you did a marvellous job, you pretty well covered almost everything – Well done!
    I’m not sure what NGO is, then again I struggle with all acronyms from other countries – and probably from my own too! 😂

    Thank you very much, Ami for taking part in our challenge.

    1. Thank you. I can not claim to know everything about everything! I do not know either but always accept and learn from new information. Thank you for taking the time to read my work. I love the pictures of your two robins! 🪶

      Sorry Sue, I do that a lot being ex-military.
      NGO, Non Government Organization.

    You forgot those who put themselves in harms way to provide security for those who cannot defend themselves. Those who work for a NGO. Individuals doing what their own government won’t sanction for political reasons.
