Thank you so much for taking the time to read and give me your thoughts on my story. I will consider your suggestions. By the way, this is not a work of fiction, this really happened to me. I found it very cathartic to write it. I also have a work of fiction that I have posted in Ask A Teacher called A Lesson in Strength. I do use dialogue in this story. If you could read that and let me know what you think, I would appreciate it as well.
