This is not grieving.
This is not mourning.
This is not sadness.
Those are not tears.
That is not crying.
What this is is the result of an inhumane, inhuman brainwashing.
A coercion of an entire society led to believe that one man, one family is all there is, and that there is nothing more.
It is what happens when every shred of humanity is stamped out of a people through authoritarian means.
Through torture.  Through famine.  Through murder.
This is not grieving.
This is not mourning.
This is fear.
