Wow! Well done! I can see this made into a whole book. Keep up the good writing.
This story really drew me in.

As a teacher, I have to wonder why no one noticed an unfamiliar student in class, especially a "black" face that would have stood out.

I admire your MC's courage in taking a stand.
You must have put a huge smile on God's face that long ago day. It's people like you who dare to take a stand for what is right that help to make this world a better place. Thank you and congratulations on your winning placement with this deserving entry.
Natalie, this is a fantastic article. So well done, and, yes, you do have a message. Don't let that message ever die. Every person is special to God. He looks on the inside, and I'd like all colored people to realize that if they keep their lives clean, they can prove a lot to people who choose to be prejudiced. Sorry to say, prejudice often goes both directions. God help us to just plain love His people. Keep writing!
