Oh my gosh...tears welling as I type. Beautiful, moving and powerful close.

God bless~
Great story-telling. You set the scene, gave highly authentic characters and delivered a gripping, poignant plot! I love it.
I am so glad this one won this week, otherwise I might not have seen it. It always amazes me what gems I miss out on when I only have time to read the stories that had bricks thrown.

I feel deprived that I didn't get to read this earlier, but glad I found it now. Just an excellent job of writing and storytelling here.

On another note, this is quite a run you're experiencing here, Tracy. Congratulations!
Congrats again Tracy!
Great story I knew you'd be right where you are!

God bless~
Tracy, you write with such emotional passion. Your entries always touch a chord inside my heart. Congratulations on this well deserved first place. God bless!
Superior writing on every level...title included!

Congratulations, Tracy!
Your story carved a piece from my heart! All I can think to say is, "Wow!" I love how you placed your characters at Pearl Harbor and I'm awed at their dimension and depth. Super congrats on top honors, Tracy!
Another brilliant piece of writing. You certainly set the bar high.A beautiful story. Your writing is an inspiration.
Melancholy yet uplifting and beautiful in its entirety.

It was so authentic it seems as if it might have been a chapter from your families history?

Well done and congratulations!
Trying to catch up on my reading and am glad I started with your entry--so beautifully gripping, sincere, poignant, and written so seamlessly from one trial to another. It's no surprise this took first place on two accounts. Way to go!
