Great story. Concise, with great fluidity and great realistic dialogue. Love the ending and the message. We don't have a handicap as long as the handicap does not have us.
I do loved this story. My daughter Emily is also a fighter. She worked hard to come in last place and she never gave up. It wouldn't surprise me at all if this Emily managed to surprise everyone and even do incredible things with running again. I really liked how you showed her spirit didn't die when she lost her leg.

This was good - you used just the right words to convey emotion and the dialogue was realistic. I also liked the hopeful ending!

I look forward to reading more of your work!

You did well with this piece. I like the message that you gave. Thank you!
Good story with a strong message - disablities don't change who we are. Good Job!
