What a unique style, so skillfully executed. I particularly enjoyed the "echo" effect. The imagery shockingly shows how destructive gossip is, but ends with the beauty and hope of Christ and truth. Very powerful writing!

I agree w/ Joan about the effective use of echoes in representing the gossip. Very well done! What's this structure called? :)

Tears blur my vision as I attempt to comment on your writing. To say it is very special isn't saying all I want to say. You are able to paint such a vivid picture by choosing exactly the right color of word.
Moving. Powerful. Exquisite.
