Yes! The future is our children. Let us hope for and try to help them find resilience. Wonderful response to the prompt.

Your few words are such food for thought. Each phrase is rich with possible meaning: strong arms of a mother, of a country, thug tactics; combine with retreat burns. So intriguing for the reader.
