I see it's worn spine and the urge to flip through the pages is almost impossible. Tired and true, it has withstood the test of time- five years-and continues to be an important place in both my bookshelf and heart.
After all these years, I will always carry this important piece literature within the walls of my heart. It has shattered my heart but made me whole. The subject is tragic and heartbreaking yes, however it is an important example of courage, compassion, and hope through the darkest hours of humanity.
