Writer Wars Winner: "Because of the Brave" by jedialonza!

Behold, Sparklers, your humble writing champion. Last week's prompt asked writers to describe someone they know without resorting to easy descriptors, and jedialonza's beautiful story won for good reason. She wrote with impeccable sincerity, imbuing her subject with a quiet dignity and gentleness. I tried to make some illustrations worthy enough to accompany it. Please give it a read, and when you're finished, head to this week's Writer Wars ( to contribute your own story!
