What an awesome story! It so totally captures exactly what it means to live in the USA. Excellent.
For being such a difficult topic, you certainly seemed to find your wings and spirited us with you on an unexpected flight to "Memory Island". That place where each one of us has a a teacher or a special someone that inspired us with the potential of our futures and fueled us with hope to make our dreams a reality. Thanks for the MEMORY!
I love stories about inspirational teachers! This is very well-written, and I enjoyed every word.
I used to teach grade school, and I also homeschooled for several years and then tutored for a few more. I have a soft spot for teachers! :)

Your story was very inspiring and All-American in tone. I especially liked the sentence: "No longer were we little kids without purpose in life; that day we became children with a dream."
I do believe this is my favorite article so far. Just beautiful in so many ways. Love the characters. Love the overall story, the American dream. . . :)
A winner for sure!

This was beautifully written; I cried. :)

No red ink could I definitely nailed this one!

Congratulations on your Highly Commended. This is well written, and very inspirational. Nice job with the topic.
Connie, congratulations on your HC on this delightful, uplifting story.
Very, very good Connie. The whole paragraph that ends " that hope escaped its solemn refuge" made me hold me breath. Beautiful message and so very tenderly written.
What a perfect story to represent the USA. I enjoyed the fact that success was attained to and success was achieved and you were able to bless your teacher as she had blessed you. Beautifully told. Thank you!
CONGRATULATIONS on your "Highly Commended" for this wonderful story! :)
