Congrats to all the winners! It's been a while since I've had an EC, and I am so pleased that it's for this one. I loved learning about this place.

Blessings to all,

Some incredible stories were told this week - this was truly an eye-opening topic. Congratulations to all who were able to bring so many things about Africa, her land, her people, her struggles and her triumphs to light.

Oh WOW! WOW WOW WOW! Thank you to the judges and for all who made it through to the end of my story and left me such awesome comments. (My pastor couldn't finish it, and my husband hated it)

Congrats to one and all. My heart (and my thanks again) goes out to this week's judges who must be emotionally and spiritually exhausted.

Congrats Catrina, and Connie, and Sharon, and Lynda and EVERYONE on the lists.

And Karlene, if that was your first draft, you truly are gaining skill--that was an excellent first draft.

I also have learned so much about the world. It's been "broadening" experience.

Again--Congratulations to all the winners!
