Testament

The young politician stood in front of the energized auditorium. Echoes of a slogan he had only recently learned rung in his ears. He had something to say, a message that needed to be heard. The faces of the crowd spoke to him. Adrenaline rushed through his veins as he perceived hope, desperation, sadness, expectation….. Each man, woman, and child wore badges bearing his name, yet none of them really knew him. How did they know he was telling the truth? How did they know he was the one on whom to cast their vote? True, they had a biographical sketch, a record of service, but most importantly, they had testimonies, testimonies of those who had seen him back up the words he was about to say. Life long friends, business associates, and people on the other side of bridges never burned…the crowd silenced, anticipating wisdom. Yet he waited one more moment, closed his eyes and silently thanked the One who testified for him before anyone else even knew his name.

Our reputations do influence how others perceive us. I would have liked this to have been expanded. You write well, but I would break up the paragraph into smaller ones. It's just much easier to read. Good job, and keep writing!

I like the complexity of its simplicity. You said a lot in a few words...which can be much more difficult than writing a 50 page paper. You did it very well.

Wow! This is very well-written. I feel that you have something really good here but you stopped yourself. Give us the rest of the story. Great writing!

Short and to the point. Great job.

The effectiveness of this piece was not lost due to its shortness. The author got his/her point across very well. I would have liked it to be longer simply because I was enjoying it. Good job!

You left me with a very memorable line "Lifelong friends on the other side of bridges never burned". I love it.
