One day there will be peace. But, maybe not today.


I really enjoyed the tone and voice of this short story. Although, I didn’t find it all that engaging.

This is a bit of a rambling adventure. And not enjoyably so. I just found it kind of hard to concentrate on the rambling and I’m honestly not 100% sure of what was even happening.

This was well written. Just not the kind of story that I really wanted to read.
