Interesting puzzle to find the answer. He really was an outstanding man.
An interesting and intelligent man you wrote about here! He truly was a gifted person.
I love puzzles! I loved the motto at the beginning of the article; "Get up! Get going! Never quit if there is life in you." Very nice story.
HI - Loved the puzzle, interesting and encouraging man. thank you.
You really showed how important it is never to give up! I caught your puzzle at "George", and spent the rest of the piece wondering how you would fit "Washington Carver" into the word limit! A nice look at your Astounding African.
Clever piece of writing. Well done.
Creative entry and interesting piece on perseverence. Some of your sentences are quite long, you may want to shorten them for a better flow.
Wow! Great writing. I love the way you wrote this article with lots of inspirational ideas. It makes you think. I really loved when you said(not quoted) that no matter how people mock and jest while the race is run, when you reach and win the race, they'll eventually stop to give you the applause.

Does your dance/orchestra teacher think you're a no good. Keep running. Eventually that same teacher might be the one giving you an applause. Thanks for this article!
Hi Esther. Just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, "An Astounding African," actually did very well in the Africa Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 1, placing 8th in that Level. Competition in Level 1 is always very intense, so well done.

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.

Again, well done. With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
