    Absolutely gut-wrenching, and necessary. A deep exploration into the rituals of grief -- how we say goodbye, how we begin to heal. The image of laying out Travis' clothing on the bed is theatrically beautiful, and also so human. Holly's fear that if she begins to scream, she'll never be able to stop... how many mothers in this country are thinking the same thing? And how many more will feel that way in the future before things change? A call to action and a call to listen to the voices of the mothers who have lost their babies to violence.

    Tear-jerker. Works powerfully on two levels. On one level, it addresses parental responsibility or collective responsibility when it comes to mourning the loss of a love one. When is the right time to move on and stop mourning? On another level, it addresses the mourning of black lives lost, including children, to cops. It connects individual loss - the lost of son - to the loss of so many black lives. And the dedication of these Black parents to carry on mourning with the other parents and everyone else. A must-read.
