Follow your dreams, believe in yourself and don’t give up.
I feel like I’m witnessing the
systematic destruction of a

with people and I realize there
is a massive military machine surrounding us, trying to kill
the people I’m having dinner with
We should be inspired by people… who show that human beings can be kind, brave, generous, beautiful, strong-even in the most difficult circumstances.
I should at least mention that I am also discovering a degree of strength and of basic ability for humans to remain human in the direst of circumstances – which I also haven’t seen before. I think the word is dignity. I wish you could meet these people. Maybe, hopefully, someday you will.
Death smells like homemade applesauce as it cooks on the stove. It is not the strangling scent of illness. It is not fear. It is freedom.

I want to be a lawyer, a dancer, an actress, a mother, a wife, a childrens author, a distance runner, a poet, a pianist, a pet store owner, an astronaut, an environmental and humanitarian activist, a psychiatrist, a ballet teacher, and the first woman president.
We are protecting civilians. We are unarmed. We are no threat to you. Please do not shoot.
I feel like I’m witnessing the systematic destruction of a people’s ability to survive. It’s horrifying.
