I am glad to know that your mother lived.
You are truly strong for sharing this.
a boy in my class said that once. if it hadn't been for the ten meters that separated us, I would have slapped him, hard. if he ever dares saying such a thing again, I don't care how many yards he's away, I'm going to kick his ass
But for more important matters: I love you artwork. And I'm really sorry you, your mother and the rest of your family had to go through this.
