    Excellent. Was really only going to read the first two-three paragraphs, and then save the rest for tomorrow. Plan was foiled and no here I am. Quite a riveting read.

    ‘We never forget.’ Such a great line. And the hardhats. They probably say it all.

    Thank you for this. Genuinely.

    I am really pleased for you. A really tight piece, and if I may say oozes class. Your style utterly changed, reflects an inner peace through a new profession. Hints of Orwell and Carver. Sublime and uplifting, how long before I get to read more?
