The Walking Dead: 4.10 Inmates – AFTERTHOUGHTS

AFRAID OF RUNNING Where do we draw the line? What’s the last straw? Do we continue to hold on contently to the illusive promise of salvation or move on, survive against all odds while we get crushed under the immense fear of living itself? The prison shelter didn’t stand after […]
