I had a difficult time with this theme (ended up not writing anything). Every time I thought of 'outbreak' I pictured the same typical scenerio, something vile starting small, then mounting and mounting until devastation. I wanted to come up with something different, but couldn't.

You did.

And it was brilliant. Loved it.
This is a beautiful look into the heart and soul of an elderly woman. So often the rest of us forget how much life they have lived and how much they have to remember. Great job!
This brings tears to my eyes, so many are changed forever because of a war. This is well-written and a tribute to everyone who has lost someone to war.
Moving, sensitive treatment of entering the life and memories of a war-ravaged family. Warm, credible and very descriptive.
