This is so beautiful. That blanket lady will likely never know how she managed to touch another total stranger -- me; thanks to your story. Life is funny like that one little smile or kind word can spread a sense of peace all across the world!

Good illustration of the topic, and also thought provoking. We are usually too quick to judge folks, just by what we see.

What a wonderful lesson! I think a lot of us need to be reminded some time or other not to "think more highly of ourselves than we ought." Thanks for sharing that lesson here.

You may have already caught these things, but just in case: I noticed in the first sentence that the comma after "awkward" got pushed in front of the "and." Also, you may need an "and" between "turned continued."

Beautiful story with a much-needed lesson.

I really enjoyed the blanket lady. It touched me.
Congratulations for placing 9th in your level!
