I was especially touched by "I cried so she would stop." What a perfectly rendered statement, in six perfect syllables!

Lovely story, heartbreaking and tender.
nicely told
So real! It's hard to imagine such a scene, having never been in such a situation. Good writing.

Amazingly vivid description. I was RIGHT there. This is so, SO deserving of the editor's choice. Congratulations!
Congratulations on a fine piece of writing. I especially liked the way you honestly portrayed the thoughts of a child in the line...pretending they were growling bears...

Well done!
