This was a very moving piece that knocked on the door of my heart. It illustrates the topic in a very real way, but it also reminds us as Christians to be willing to follow the tugs of the Spirit to reach out to someone who is hurting. Well done.

This illustrated the topic really well, especially with the line: “It doesn’t matter what happens to me, as long as it makes him feel bad for how he treated me.”

Loved the ending of this, and knowing that it was a true story really blessed me.

Some of your sentences tend to be run-ons, and I'd like a bit more "showing" in this piece.

Laura's attitude really typifies this proverb!

So glad that he went and knocked on that door. Isn't it amazing what that one act of kindness, of being different, can do to help someone in need? This was really good, especially with the post card. I liked it.
