Thank you so much for this heartbreaking and honest story. What a life you describe! The details you chose support the sad weight of the story. Well done.

This well-written and very emotional story is told through small details. It is heartrending and real.

Very beautifully written. Gave me tears. Thank you.

Short but very well written.

Such a strong voice and well-chosen sensory details throughout this piece, which are affecting and not at all overwrought despite its intense subject.

I am truly impressed with this piece, thank you for showing me such intensity in a short but insightful story.

A beautifully rendered story of frailty and strength, fear and hope, destruction and survival.
