Gripping and powerful! My heart was aching for Simon the whole time, but even more so for everyone else in his country. You did a great job "reversing" the common feelings I would have in this story by making me feel happy for Simon and sad for everyone else. I loved the ending, of the young girl being "branded" in God's eyes. May Simon's message live on!

Great job! You communicated the truth so clearly and simply --in a compelling story. The ending is great and it ties the story up very neatly.
Great job on this convicting story.

This was intense, excellently written, and an insightful vision of how things might be some day. You had my attention all the way through.
Scary. Your MC is indeed bold. This is well done.
Well done. I, too, imagine what it will be like someday. May we all have the boldness to spread the Word, no matter what.
Now THIS is bold. Great attention to detail, and I found the girl to be quite haunting - and sad, speaking of a world with no hope at such a young age. Excellent job, and may the Lord grant us the courage when the time comes.
