Very good. A well told story, especially in holding the reader's interest. Great assimilation of scripture throughout.
Very nicely written. My grandparents had their own "tale", and I loved learning about it. This is a very good entry.
I love reading family tales--I get lost in my own family's history quite often and this reminded me of all the stories passed down through my family.
Nice title with a well written story following it. I was thirsty for more of the diary entries (a sure sign that you were holding my interest!) Very nice ending too, ties in well with the topic.
This is now my favorite entry this week. I found myself leaning forward to read this--a sure sign that you'd captured my attention. You deftly captured the classic "American story"--hence your title. Loved the beautiful language in the journal entries. "The dirt convinces me of its newness...." Excellent.
Perfect title for this beautiful entry. Thoroughly enjoyed reading this article. :)
Who doesn't love reading a diary entry. Love this contemporary and historical story. You captured my attention when you mentioned "an apple pie recipe" :)
This was a great way to capture USA history. Well done.
Congratulations on your 3rd place. This is well written--I really like the format. Nice job with the topic.
A tale very well told! :)Congratulations on your 3rd place win for this excellent piece!
I love thinking about ancestors and family members who took bold steps to leave other countries and come here. I don't know where I would be if they hadn't. This entry kept my attention and made me want more. Good job!
