I read such a strong spirit-led resolve in your actions. You were following the lead of your commander and chief...
'Onward, Christian Soldier!' I am glad that your protective goal was achieved.

I can't tell you what this has done for me today. Your bravery saved that poor soul from the hell she was going through, at the cost of your job. God worked through you and gave you grace for obeying His wishes.

You have strengthened my faith and courage today with this fine entry. I will listen for God's word with more confidence from now on. Thank you so much.

This is so well written and is sure to help others the way it has helped me.

I hope the judges are paying attention.

God Bless you, my friend.
I have tears in my eyes. I can't imagine such callousness for another human. Recently, my cat caught a mouse. It lay suffering on my living room floor. While I certainly don't want mice in my house, my heart broke to see another creature suffer. I can't imagine how painful it would be to be in your position. You really touched my heart. Some of the sentences were a tiny bit awkward. I often will read my work aloud and if I stumble, it's a good sign that I need to rework them. It's even harder to do with a true story, though, because my mind sees the story intensely. I think you nailed the topic. You left me with a sense of peace and hope. You also encouraged me to stop and pray for patients being abused as well as those entrusted to care for them. Thank you for sharing.

Your message and your courage are clear - that the mighty fortress is not merely for personal escape from real or imagined danger. Its doorway is wide open for others to also find peace and security - even at the temporary cost of what we might consider to be our rights.
I like how you included the irony of two widely-different assessments of your work- only weeks apart. Well done.

Your article touched me deeply this morning. It's such a clear picture of the health care business--more of a business than of delivering care. How grateful I am to hear that folks like your MC and the witness are working to provide what patients need, not just what will add to the bottom line of a business. I'm grateful for your courage to exercise your convictions in daily life, even if it meant your job. Thanks for sharing this incredible story with us. May God bless you and those He's using to help those like this dear lady. Nicely done piece.

Thanks for sharing this true story. It must have taken much courage to do what you did and what a blessing your actions were. It's good to hear of people like you standing up for the weak, against the callousness of others. God bless you.
You touched my heart with this story. I'm so glad you felt able to share. It was beautifully and meekly written and a reminder to ask ourselves in any given situation, 'What would Jesus do?'
