Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4 Reviewer: weavereb Signed
A+++++++++++++++++ Pony!!!  I've never read this version before.  I love the added bits about there being peace on Adam's face and about Joe's hands still being scarred.  Absolutely one of the best fanfics I have ever read!

Author's Response: Thank you, Elisha! The revised ending (scars) was very important to me. Like Joe (and just about everyone else), I have also been scarred by life, but those experiences have contributed toward making me the person I am today, and for that, I am thankful.
