Today I received an e-mail I've been expecting for about six weeks now.
It's from a reader of “Make-Believe.”
The story hit close to home for him. He lost his brother-in-law in Iraq.
The characters, the emotions rang true, he wrote. He said he was touched.
I've written back to everyone that's written me about the story, over a hundred people thus far. I'm going to write this correspondent back as well. Not tonight–I need to sleep on it, decide what to write.
It rang true.
