This is a sad story that emotes images that are profoundy apparent in all aspects of society today.

Nice job of bringing poverty into a story that was spot on. God Bless you~
Oh what a sad story. You did a great job of painting this bleak picture. There are too many kids like that in our country. We need to find ways to help them pay for camp so they can go to camp and escape from their horrible life, even just a week with Godly people could make a huge difference.
Congratulations. God bless~
Congratulations on a well deserved HC win! Your story was so well written, powerful in image and so sad in its reflection of truth for many children. Well Done!
Thanks so much for the encouraging comments. I really appreciate it! I work in a public school and this story is unfortunately based on a student I worked with. As Christians we need to remember that although we know there is always hope there are those around us who do not.
