I love this piece for two reasons. First, of course, it is well written and thought provoking ... and a tear jerker. But second, I know that it is true - not this exact account but plenty like it. I wasn't at all surprised to read that you have relatives there - it was written like an 'insider' rather than someone just using a bit of imagination. My colleague lost her cousins-in-law and seeing things through her eyes makes it seem so real too ... which it is. Well done for touching many.
We spend our lives in an atmosphere that allows us to feel so big, but when something like this hits home, the world becomes so big and we become sooooo small. It's an overwhelming experience to feel so intense yet so small. You voiced it with talent because its so real to you. Even this shall pass, He says.
Draw nigh unto me and I will draw nigh unto you.
God Bless your heart with peace.

Beautifully written. A provocative piece. What a dreadful to happen and what mighty things God is doing as a consequence.

I am so glad someone was able to embrace this subject with such tenderness and balance. Excellent job!
An excellent story. I love the hope in the end. I'd like to see some assurance that children are never condemned, but I know you're dealing with a limited number of words. Very well done.

Amen. They are in my thoughts and prayers. God will make a way where there is no way. Beautiful, touching article. I'm sure although fictional, it a truth that is felt in many hearts. Thank you for adding our hearts with theirs. God bless, littlelight
Very touching and involving. A heart-rending work.

I loved this piece. I thought it touched on that tragedy with sensitivity & realism. The only (tiny) thing I might change is the first sentence. Instead of "the woman's toes," I would say "Shantha's toes," to immediately connect her to your reader. Other than that small detail, I absolutely loved it!
Blessings, Lynda
