Excellent sense of place and fear and resolve. This moved me, and came across as completely plausible. Wonderfully done.

I was certain that you had been "a fly on the wall", and that this was real and not fiction. Well done.

My goodness, this is breath-taking. Your vivid descriptions and eloquent alliteration only add to the essence of this great message. I love this line:
No majestic Words from Heaven were spoken, no trumpets blared; just a peace that surpassed all of their doubts and questions. WOW!

Awesome account Bill...so believable as told by a very talented writer.

You carried us as it flowed to the end and packed in a whole lot of stuff. A GREAT out of the box take. ;)

Top notch, and I really loved the alliteration in the first few paragraphs. Such a lovely touch of wordsmanship.

Marvelous opening line - and the writing that follows is just as eloquent and masterful. GREAT job!
A dramatic, refreshing look that goes beyond the lame rehetoric we hear so often to true action and conviction. I especially liked this line: What I am going to say is nothing compared to what I am going to do. It won’t be by words or speech that we will overcome this. I’m going to dedicate myself to putting us on a path of dedicated direction and deed." Your historical fiction is very convincing indeed.
