This was a jarring--and well written--read. Great descriptions, and excellent narrative. Well done.

God bless~
An interesting look at perception. And a great application of theme.
Wow. This is an awesome piece of writing. I am struck by the power of your imagery and the rawness of the emotions you put on display here, from the parents' dreams, the silence as they stared at the photo page for the boy and the boy's stark fear of the gates closing behind him.

Just a fantastic job all the way around. It sticks with me and I will remember this entry for a long time.
Congratulations! God bless~
