  • I read this story.

    It made me sad and angry. It reminded me of someone.

    So I've sent a message in a bottle.

    Cast off into a sea of stories, to wash up somewhere.

    It's not asking anyone for help.

    It's bringing it.

    It might float for a long long time. But that's ok.

    Because the bottle is unbreakable
