I loved the way that you ended this story. I fear that this is a real problem that many people face and God is definately the answer.
Short and sweet. Just one red mark: I think you meant 'find' Eddie's mom a job, not 'fid'

Also, it wasn't entirely clear Eddie was in college but I did figure it out. Maybe instead of saying 'freshman' which could mean either high school or university you could have said 'first year of college/university. Just a thought. Good story line.
Inspirational, short and sweet!Loved it! So glad the mom found a job and her young man didn't have to "quit." Thx for writing this-good job and great message and reminder!
This story is all too real for many senior adults. Statistics show that people over 50 years age old are more likely not to be employed as their younger counterparts. This is largely due to the cost of pensions and health care.

I am glad that your story ended well.
i liked this story :-) it was no nonsense, no "flowery bits" and i think it is like the college prinicpal, straighforward, down to earth and gets the job done and the message across.
Even the simplicity of the single word title is there.

i am from the UK so education and college etc is different here but i still got the flow of the story. thanks
Nice short story. It kept my interest.
