This is a fantastic story told very well.
Adam seemed to live a life of truth and this was a perfect story for him. I can't even imagine another C in his place. This was his story.
Maybe he seen a little of himself in the man. Maybe he identified with the man's tenacity and quest for justice. Hmm...
You have a beautiful writing style. Poetic at times.
As I was reading, I kept thinking how much Pernell would have loved to be in a story like this.
You didn't shy away from the truth. but you handled it with dignity and grace.
