Wonderful take on leadership. I enjoyed reading your entry.

Well written.

A great picture of leadership. A good leader makes decisions based on what's best, not what's popular. And the ending brings up the second duty of a good leader or parent: first give them roots and them give them wings." An excellent piece of work. You are very gifted. [and wise]
Very creative story! Nice approach to the topic. I really enjoyed how your main character kept shuddering at the officer's foolish habits - made me smile. Well done!
This is a truly enjoyable, yet lesson-filled piece. It is filled with, love, humor, realism and resposibility, all the things that makeup and surround a leader. Great job! - Nancy
Okay, from the title to the end, this is going to be on my "favorite" list! The little humor lines stuck in on the side about the detective often had me laughing outloud! And the ending line! Man, can I show that to my big sis?! Just a delightful read
