Wow! I've never thought of what war would be like; how it would affect a person... the thoughts that would go through one's mind.
Very moving story on the horrors of war and what soldiers endure. Very moving piece.
This is an excellent, masterfully crafted story. I can fully feel the fear of this soldier, but also his determination to find a source of peace and courage. You really were able to put the thoughts of the soldiers into the kinds of words that I can understand. It breaks my heart to think the men and women have to face such fear, but I'm glad to know the Peace of God can reach right into a lonely tent in the desert and touch a soldier's heart. This is a really important message and you've brought it to my attention in a way I won't soon forget.
The unrest of war is hard to shake. God is the only answer to our peace of mind.
If only all soldiers in that situation would call out to the one who can calm them. Good story.
Congratulations on your 3rd place. This story really touches the soul. Good job.
You conveyed the fearful thoughts and bodily reactions of the MC's well while at the same time bringing home to us the fact that we really need to be in prayer for our troops.
