Lea’s question

Makkre,

There are some things… that children must come to know in their own time, and not thrust upon them. How will you explain death to a young child as the Sepia Order understands it? That when people are gone they are nothing? They cease to exist? What of then who they once were? People live on even after they are gone Makkre, in our hearts, in the things they leave behind, be it a child, a book, or a toy made. Do you know Aelise treasures the ravencarving her father made for her? What then should I tell her when she asks about her father? You say you tell only truths Makkre, but I ask you, what is the distinction between what is true, and what is false? Is it only when it’s a truth to you then that you choose to repeat it? What of the truths held by others?

Yours,

Lea
