Beautiful character description and message! I could see Charlie in the initial portrayal of him and feel the compassion of the teacher who cares about his future and his life.

Would like to see more direct action and dialog throughout the story. This would bring both characters and the message conveyed even more to life.

Great allegory with the seed that needs to be planted!
Very well written! Great word choice throughout! And a powerful message. My own jump into adulthood doesn't seem like it was so long ago, and it was scary. Thank God for my family and for their prayers and encouragment. But what of those who don't have that support? Adulthood holds its own fears, and we often forget what it was like to be on that plank, looking into the water.

The passion of a teacher... Which of us is called to that delicate, but so important job of teaching and encouraging the young?
finding encouragement in a difficult task - good job.
I could hear you! Reading this was like sitting in the room listening to and hanging on every word you spoke.
