The-Shawshank-Redemption1Well guys, Saturday is here again so I’m here to bring you all another philosophical story challenge. This week’s challenge revolves around the idea of redemption. It’s pretty much common knowledge that people feel a need for redemption. We know that we are flawed and we seek someone or something to redeem us from these imperfections. What is interesting is the nearly universal acceptance of the implicit idea that we cannot redeem ourselves, at least not from our character flaws. We can redeem ourselves for specific actions, but most people seem to agree that we cannot redeem ourselves from the parts of us that we dislike. For your challenge this week I want you to write a story about this search for redemption. I leave it up to you to determine everything else. As usual, keep the story under 1,000 words if you want to post it on here, but feel free to write more!
