Why us? Why now? What did we do? What we forget to do, neglect to do? There is no answer that will change things. Alice, the middle child of three sisters, will not be going to school when it opens in the fall – she who had dreamed about that day ever since her older sister got her first schoolbag.
Death – inevitable, universal, irreversible – affects us all, but the death of a child seems unacceptable. Yet, a child may depart simply, serenely, if she is certain that her parents won’t suffer. Trois petites soeurs, in the end, speaks about life – before and after. With this text, Suzanne Lebeau propose an acceptance of death without ever forgetting the departed.
