Beautiful and poignant entry. I truly enjoyed this, and felt strong emotions during my whole time reading it. Great job.
God Bless~
Oh this was so good. I felt myself holding my breath, afraid of being heard. This was outstanding from beginning to end.
Very evocative treatment of a shameful era. Well written.
Golden words from a hay and stubble time not quite gone by. The story flowed and held me as I also held my breath. If you develop it further you might want help with just a bit of fine tuning on the speech patterns, though it does read well.
This reminds me of the movie Amastad where the slave, who knew no English, boldly shouted in court "Give us free!" - in the only words he could. It made me cry, and your story was as profound and poignant. God bless!
Congratulations for ranking 6th in level 3!
