After reading Sunshine’s blog again, I’ve been thinking about her solution to such an oppressive environment. She’s not chosen the path of violence, nor of despair as so many of her friends and relatives have done. She’s chosen to shine- not only to be positive, but to boldly proclaim something the terrorists can never claim by force- her hope. No matter what they do, they cannot stop her from getting 90’s in school, and they cannot stop her from loving her family and friends. I would have taken arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing, ended them. But no, Sunshine is far braver than me, and has chosen to be.
I wonder, sometimes, about what’s worth being for, truly.
