This is well done. You gave an outstanding vision of what the world might be like during the apocalypse.

You did have a few typos, but the heart wrenching story made them barely noticeable. Excellent writing.

This is very powerful!

Don't feel that you have to tell an entire back story in 750 words. Some of your descriptive passages could have been tightened up or eliminated so that you could help us to get to know this letter-writer and her own circumstances better.

Heartbreaking and compelling story, with great potential.
