wake up nightmare
We’ve Met Often
Back to back appeared the stories of David Burleson (“Wake Up From the Nightmare,” Cover Story, September 16) and Adam Jacobs (“Voyage With Mother on Piggyback,” Feature Story), two young men who are seeking but not finding. I meditate on these two horrific parables of postmodernity. I recall my 61 years as a soldier and teacher. I have met David and Adam thousands of times. There was only one word I could give them. It was “God.”
Compelling Tiny Type
This piece was so compelling (“Wake Up From the Nightmare,” Cover Story, September 16). I actually read it via my Facebook app on my iPhone — and it wasn’t a short story — but I couldn’t stop reading it. Bravo to the author for sharing it.
Best Wishes For The Decade
What a sad story (“Wake Up From the Nightmare,” Cover Story, September 16). I hope those young men have a better decade. It gives me inspiration to be a better dad!
Bad, Bad Mother
I enjoyed the cover story “Wake Up From the Nightmare” (September 16) but thought the artwork unfortunately depicted a sheriff’s deputy as the “bad guy.” I thought the story had something to do with law enforcement abuses until I read it. The artwork was depicting a deputy having to do an unfortunate job in a situation resulting from the author’s mother’s drug addiction. The mother was the real “bad guy” in this story, not the sheriff’s deputy.
