Beginning to Stand

​A prisoner of war camp Commander gathers all the prisoners together, and sits them in the center of the compound, once a week, to offer them freedom. 

Any prisoner may go free, if they only stand up and walk out of the gate on their own. 

However, standing means being ridiculed and coaxed to walk. And walking means moving through the corridor of war camp officers who are well equipped with all manner of weapons. They will do all they can to stop you from escaping, except shoot you. 

If you make it through all the officers, alive, and out of the gate, you are free to go. 

Many have tried before you. None have made it. 

Do you stand up?
