Mommy, why are the man in blue taking daddy?
I thought free meant to have rights
to be able to speak and explain themselves?
If that’s the case, why did they put daddy in a black bag while he’s sleeping?
Mommy, tell daddy to wake up. He won’t listen to me.
Daddy, get up, please. Tell them they can’t just take you. Mommy why are you
crying?
Why are the blue men yelling? Mommy what’s going on,
why won’t daddy listen to me?
What are the men in blue holding?
Mommy, stop crying, mommy, I’m scared.
Daddy, wake up. Aren’t you able to break free?
Daddy, daddy get up
Mommy, I’m scared. Where are they taking daddy? Don’t take my dad while he’s
asleep.
Give him back.
Daddy, daddy come on. Mommy, why are there lights everywhere, mommy?
The men in blue are yelling mommy, what is going on?
Brother, why are they taking mommy?
Mommy, don’t leave. We need to wake daddy.
Aren’t we supposed to be free?
