Word of the Day
Protect (transitive verb) -- to guard; to keep from harm; to guard against injury; to prevent from coming under attack; to safeguard (from Latin meaning "to cover in front")

Word in a Sentence: In the Choices fantasy trilogy, the propechy scrolls make it clear that Chariss is to protect The Master Rothahn, the highest active god of Mahriket, because she is not merely an orphaned mortal, but a well-trained wizard's apprentice who has special gifts beyond anyone's imagination.

Your turn! After last night's show at Internet Voices Radio, in which we talked quite a lot about protecting bears in celebration of Bear Awareness Week, I thought it prudent to use this simple, yet meaningful vocabulary word today. It's an easy one to be creative with. What intriguing sentences can you come up with to lodge it in our minds today?

"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
