Wow. The ending was very unexpected and heart renching. You made the reader feel hope, then a burst of bravery, and then pain. It had an emotional connection that was strong and descriptive. Very insightful and amazingly written. Bravo! -Ambre

I actually read this twice, because the first time I was interrupted and I didn't have the chance to write something or react. But oh my gosh, this is so...special. Reading it twice let me realize and appreciate the repetition of "I will be safe but I will be known as..." , which is really clever and a beautiful device that shows the process of her thoughts. You have written so sensitively, touching on topics that are causing a lot of political disputes in the US; how to best approach bullying, gun control, student mental health, etc. It's short and to the point, which actually turns out to be a good thing, because readers get to focus on the those crucial minutes before something horrible like this happens, what exactly triggers people do plan things like that and the heroism people show to protect others, sometimes even in spite of friendship. Amazing, amazing job! Bravo.

This is amazing! With all of the shootings that have been going on lately, this hits it on the mark. It's sad that--both in this story and in real life--that someone gets hurt so badly that they would resort to great lengths to ensure they wont get hurt again. I also love the narrators transition in this short, short story. She started off as quiet--not going to stop him. Then she became vocal. Then she stopped him. It took her life, but that was sacrifice.

This was overall fantastic!!! It had all the elements of a great story: a hero, sacrifice, climax, and a sad thought provoking villain. You really nailed this piece. I honestly hope you win.
