Bring Back Nelson Mandela, performed by Hugh Masekela.
Closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything. Nothing’s going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes. That’s the kind of world we live in. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won’t make time stand still.

|Him:||What about Sethe and Paul D?|
|Me:||::quietly falls in love::|

It’s amazing what you find out about yourself when you write in the first person about someone very different from you.
