Such is life.

i i feel different now

The art style is beautiful! Conveys the story well.

The art and the story telling were amazing! I strongly felt her emotions, very heart breaking. Not sure if the audio is of a real mother's experience or a voice actor, but definitely felt the emotions. My only complaint is that I hardly doubt a stabber, shooter, or a murderer has feelings (at least normal feelings) so awareness might not be a solution to the problem. The issue stems from tyranny, greed, poverty, racism, drugs, gangs, etc. If we can't solve such problems, we should at least learn how to avoid such situations (mistakes made by stabbed kid) and try to not repeat them if possible. Also learning self defense is a must if you're going to go to dangerous areas. As humans we are doomed to death, misery, and loss, so the least we could do is to appreciate our loved ones and be nice to them because you never know when you're going to lose them, and appreciate having the experience of knowing them, because there are a lot of people who aren't fortunate enough to experience such relationships.
