Words Fall Like Rain Pt. II

The History of Death Rituals in the Western Hemisphere by Dr Jane Rios Domingo, Ph.D.

It wasn’t a large book, smaller than a Harry Potter novel, but it took me at least a week to get through it the first time.

Words Fall Like Rain Pt. I

I’ve been here for hours. I’m tired, I’m hungry, and I want to use the bathroom. I want to scream more than anything, but nothing comes out.
