Very well written, very interesting. Thankyou for the explanations at the bottom of the page to clarify terms.

Wonderfully written piece that takes the fight for democracy from the headlines and gives us a realistic personal peek. Enjoyed! Great job!

Very realistic and absorbing outline of the human side of the struggle for freedoms that we take for granted. I also thank you for the glossary at the close.

Vivid. Intense. Real. I felt like I was there. I felt the urgency, and the detachment too. Serving baklava and tea, at such a time as this! Reminds me of how sheltered I am here inside the tree-lined streets of my relatively quiet city, sipping on Starbucks coffee, while somewhere else at the present time something quite different is happening.

Congratulations on receiving Highly Recommended! Reading through your story, I'm not too sure how much of the story is related to the Christian cause or purely for human rights. The feelings of the characters and the circumstances described in the story are very well written. Good job.
