An old traveling storyteller enters a city with nothing to his name but the stories he has spent his life gathering, which he wishes to pass on before he dies.

This project took a year and over 1,000 man-hours to put together, huge thanks to Zeedox (Greg) for sticking it through with me! I really hope you all enjoy this :)

One of the best and most touching videos that I ever found in Newgrounds.It's not a surprise it took an year,to compose all those rhymes!To fill the screen with life and to bring us hope in the night.

It's now been almost a year since I first have seen this story, and coming back to it, I just wanted to give a heartfelt thanks to the creators of this piece of art.

I didn't think I needed to write a review for this, honestly. It really is a work of art and I cannot push myself to look for any flaws when a story can bring out emotions so well. But, I do think this piece of art deserves a praise, even after so many people have already expressed their thanks.

When I first saw it, I shed myself a tear, truly feeling the emotion put into this story. It isn't common for me to find myself drawn into one story like this, and when it does, it really makes my day. To this day, this one video has managed to do the same thing for me every time I have seen it, sending across it's message clearly and beautifully.

This is why, even though this might just disappear into the masses of messages over time, I want to thank you, creators, for making this piece of art. And for those who are watching, are about to watch, or have just watched this story, take with you the lesson that was learned here, and do your best to make this world a better place.

Thank you.

Kind regards, Distractionz
