This just rolls off the tongue and paints a picture of an ugly era in the states. I don'tthink I'll ever, ever, ever understand slavery. It's definitely an ugly mark on history. You captured all of this perfectly.
Powerful and evocative writing that releases depth from within its simplicity. I also struggle with the dehumanising aspects of slavery for the slave and the slaveowner alike. It called to my mind a 1997 Speilberg movie: "Amistad," with Morgan Freeman, Anthony Hopkins and Matthew McConnaughey, which portrays the slaves with dignity and outlines the gospel in a remarkable way. The closing speech on freedom is well worth the wait.
Loved it! Very well done and very touching!
Congratulations for placing 10th in level 3!
