What a heartwarming and beautiful story. Because of your powerfully descriptive words, I had no trouble picturing the old messenger. Masterfully written take on the topic.
What a touching story so filled with human compassion. The story was moving and your words so captured the theme.

I loved the line... "Walter watched Old Man Elijah shuffle through the town to deliver yet another colored envelope."
Beautiful writing--I'd definitely love to read a much longer piece based on these characters.
The metaphor in the last line was a true crowning touch for this beautifully written article.
Heart felt with emotion. However, the speech tags are not needed in opening paragraphs and the italics are hard to read and actually carry another meaning. Construction of the essay also needs to repaired. Always look at the preview before submitting. blessings dub
Very interesting tale.
