hold onto your brother
No one will ever construct a prison darker than the one we build for ourselves. Guilt, shame, pain, are very cruel masters/mistresses that all of us will obey. None of the demons within are born of choice, yet none can or ever will be purged by another that lives outside.
If your brother is/was a veteran, tell him "welcome home" from me, and alwys tell him thank you for serving. No one that served came back unharmed. we are all casualties of wounds others will never understand.
I don't animate, I'm a musican, but I understand what I watch and you can tell more than just a story, so please continue. If you reach one, you have touched the world. Thank you.
