I liked your characterizations of the grandpa and granddaughter. Definitely a bitter-sweet tale of redemption from past sins, contrasted with the difficulty of forgiving oneself. Nice details.

Oh, powerful piece. Didn't see the end coming at all. Definitely an excellent fit for the topic.

I'm always amazed at the way you reverse expectations--to provoke, to teach, to pinpoint profound truth. This is a powerful story of one man's penance! Thankfully, God can grant us the forgiveness that we sometimes cannot grant ourselves. A heart-felt congratulations!
