Then, let the grown men come, she shouted. They stepped out one by one from among the ringing trees. Let your wives and your children see you dance, she told them. And ground life shuddered beneath their feet. Finally, she called the women to her. Cry, she told them. For the living and the dead, just cry. And without covering their eyes, the women let loose.

Children cried until exhausted." - Author: Toni Morrison
