| Is so true!
Yes, so engaging, one can not see it without a struggle of heart. But there's something more, this short breaks one of happy end scenary schema. It's so true. Brings you pictures from real world,our world. Encourages you to look around. Can make you begin see more, understand more. Forces you to think some things over one more time.
