Wow, beautifully-written. Thank you for this special glimpse into the Philippines.
The Topic of Life - life as seen in the Phillipines. An interesting story about jackfruit, jeepneys and Ilongo's - words alien to this reader, but a fascinating tale about the children in paradise. Very nicely done.
Beautiful! I could see, hear, and smell every scene.
Salamat gid. Well done. Your article was a much needed reminder of a valued truth.
Great descriptions, your lead sentence really caught me - "We were taught not to touch the children."
Great descriptions. I could, see hear and smell everything going on!
April, congratulations! Well-deserved recognition by the judges for a wonderful piece of nonfiction. You brought the whole thing alive with your excellent style and shimmering verbs--and most of all because you saw it with your heart.
Wonderful! Congratulations! :)
Reality check for me. My favorite line:-----"It seemed Jesus himself stepped from the woods with these little ones, pieces of our hearts stolen by every pair of black eyes."-----Oh, to have the faith of a child. True contentment is in Him. Wonderful job. Congradulations.
