trust and betrayal

i watched the Kenshin Tsuiokuhen OVAs again, after more than a decade.
it took me one day to muster up the courage to watch the last half hour.
again, it was heartbreakingly, breathtakingly tragic. brutal. i feel i understand it more now - not just because i have since learned about the bakumatsu and what was being fought for. but because i now understand the meaning of grief. the desire to find peace beyond the pain. to rest. and the need for redemption.
