I like the way you've written this story through the eyes of a child, possibly with special needs, or maybe just a very young child. Either way it was a unique take on the topic, and you've set me off pondering once more - chicken or egg?

I've contemplated that complex question before and have never come to a forlorn conclusion.

I was sad when the mother died, but I am glad she got the answer.

Well written.
Really well written story--the voice is perfect.

Written from the tenderness and innocence of a child. You did a nice job. I enjoyed the story until the mom died. That was sad. I felt sorry for the boy. At least he had Grandma to turn to. The ending lifted my spirits back up, so thank you.

Congratulations on your number one entry this week. I knew it was a winner the moment I read it!
Congratulations, Francy! Nicely done.
Telling a story from a child's point of view takes a lot of skill. I was so impressed with the way you handled this topic.
I wonder what the adult equivalent to a punching the head is? Drugs, drink, rationalism?
Congratulations on a well-deserved win.
