Ohmygoodness, it was sooo hard to pick! There were some very amazing stories. It's too bad there is only one first prize to hand out. ;) I could tell this topic really got people inspired, and there were some very moving stories. I am glad people are out there, writing and sharing their world. Keep it up!
