    [JP] 弔いにする ???

    So, in this manga, there's a girl talking about her presumedly dead father with her mother, her mother just asked her if she want to follow her father's steps (being a rebel and trying to change the world) and she says this
    世界を変えて父さんの弔いにするんだ

    What does she mean with 弔いにする ???

    弔う(とむらう) means .... to honor and console the soul of a deceased. I would probably just translate the line as "I will change the world for my late father." or something like that. I guess you could use "for the sake of" to emphasize a bit more.
