really liked it
bookshelves: to-own
Read in August, 2012

"I was sucking in deep the scent of the mountains, like incense maybe for people who pray."

"And me, I sat wondering what to do. Momma would've served sweet tea and brownies and asked everyone how they, bless their hearts, were feeling. And Jesus, maybe would've faced Mecca and prayed along with the rumple-suited Baptist and the Sri Lankan invader-though I wouldn't know."

"Em joined a church-though at least only an Episcopal church, so it could've been worse."

"Letting things roll along for the sake of not upsetting the social order or disturbing anyone's day can contribute more to the perpetuation of evil than all the blazing crosses in the world."
