Wow this is outstanding! It broke my heart. You did a great job both bringing attention to some nursing homes as well as forms of dementia. This is definitely an all-time favorite for me!
I enjoyed this well written story. It relates well to the challenge topic, I think, and carries a message we all need to hear.
Tough topic and many writings this week were good but I couldn't see the topic; this one relates to the topic very well and does a good job presenting cohesive inner dialog
Well written and sadly, the laments of most individuals in nursing homes. As I have mentioned before, my entire career I worked as a Director in nursing homes; and the people in there truly lose a lot of their independence, and they need strong advocates (human angels) to be their "voice."

Good job. God Bless~
Very sensitive portrayal of your MC, and the milieu he is in. Frustration mixed with hope, and a touch of gratitude amidst the loneliness. Well-captured material.
A heartbreaking description of 'imprisonment' expressed so well in written words. Excellent piece.
This touched my heart deeply.
It reminds me of way to many times of seeing the sadness on the patients in the nursing home. Thank you for giving them a voice in your story.
Your story broke my heart! It was as if you were telling my father in law's story. What a relief it will be when we all are released with new bodies to our heavenly home.
After reading this article, I really feel blessed that you gave my "Wedding Awry-----" such a nice review. This article was outstanding and so many could relate-inside a rest home, and outside-with someone in there! What a great job of writing this was.
