It's hard to talk about this short story without giving away too much information. But, one thing I could warn you is not to be fooled with the beautiful cover and child-friendly title of this book. This isn't a kind of bedtime story you'd want to read to your kids. - Unless, you want them to understand how horrible, scary and mess up the world we live in and rob them of a happy and innocent childhood they deserve.
With barely 3600 words, this book has manage to give me a roller coaster ride of emotion. First it was confusion, and then shock, then pain followed by Anger. Then realization slap me in the face as this story isn't new anymore, this happens everyday in every part of the world, we see this in the news everyday, and yet, we can't do anything about it, except be angry and sad and ask, Why?
Mama Cried is an imaginative tragedy and haunted portrayal of love and justice in the eyes of an innocent child.
If God can truly forgive our sins if we just truly asks for forgiveness, then what's stopping us, humans, from doing them in the first place? Does He really forgive?
