A cockroach he? I heard they can't feel pain... So I guess Ecks would never hurt then, even when dying.
                              
                              On a side note, I am watching Terra Formars these days... The cockroaches in it are quite interesting ^^

I love this! So much is said with so little, and I could hear their voices as if they were talking out loud. Great story!

This is one of  my all time favorite stories.  No matter how many times I read it, it still makes me cry with its understated directness and sensitivity.  And today, it is more relevant than ever as fear of "the other" stalks the land with ever increasing virulence.
