This was powerful. I wanted to slug the boys myself. Loved the ending.

Tears here. Why are some boys like that? Great piece, thanks.

A very true to life story that was both sad and touching. Well told.

It seems that instead of walking humbly, Milt should have been walking boldly and proudly; you did a great job of explaining his brave act to these bullies; and also of putting the story into words that touched my heart. Great story, very well written, and I wish there were more "Mr. Sands" to run interference for all the victims of bullies in this world. Good Job.

Excellent! I like that you dropped hints early on that the two men had previous history...and then gave us the "gulp" at the end.

The characters shine, the dialogue superb. You propelled me right into the midst of the action and held me captive right to the end! Mastercrafting at its finest!

So very compelling. You did a fabulous job of showing us those characters, and your ending was just right.

Wonderful writing! I could actually feel the experience. Thanks for sharing Milt with us!
I finished reading this with such a lump in my throat! Just so well written with a wonderful underlying message...
This is excellent! I wouldn't be surprised if this places.
Great job! Well done!
