Some very unpleasant people your MC had to deal with! I liked the ending - reminding us that we can all speak the language of kindness if we choose to.
So true. We can show a little kindness and people will know what kind of people we are.

a really good piece of writing, in my opinion. you do great descriptions of the people and unfold the story in such an absorbing and realistic way. I felt like i was there in that room.The topic too of intolerance of "foreigners" is a common one the world over and so relevant and bang on the theme> I hope you get a ribbon for this one :-)
I really felt for your MC. Poor thing -- having to deal with all those grumpy people. I appreciated the way your MC remained compassionate in the midst of all that complaining. Good job.
I really enjoyed this. It brought tears to my eyes. You did an outstanding job and I loved your message. So many of us need to hear it! This was one of my favorites!
