Your riveting story gives a true picture of the anguish of war and what generations before us had to endure. The emphasis of faith is a solid reminder of its importance in our lives, especially when we need God the most.
Beautifully written story of a legacy of faith--reads as though it were real.

Great job conveying such a sad time in the history of the world. I like how you conveyed that all was well with Grandpa's soul without having to spell it out. Good job showing and not telling.
That last line was one of the most powerful and poignant endings I've seen. The impact the grandfather had on his grandchild was palpable and I hope that one day, in a future challenge entry, we find out how that legacy shapes the grandchild and what they do with it.
Another really wonderful story from you, thankyou again. I love the picture you paint, the truth of the power of God on family members 'I slept, secure and safe in Granddad’s faith, though I had no understanding of his calmness' and I partiuclarly love the ending. A joy to read.

Wonderful, poignant and if it is a true story - astounding.

This had the feeling of a reality actually experienced by the author, not just a second or third hand accounting. Very masterfully done!

A very well told story with a real ring of truth about it. You've told it as if you were there through your very believable MC. It was a pleasure to read this.

Great job! I love this, "I grew to understand Granddad’s abiding legacy to me, having peace in my soul when there is no peace on earth." Good luck in the Challenge.
