Horrific. Brutal. Disturbing. I could not stop reading.

Only three stars here because these stories fuel nightmares. You've been warned.

Predictable and preachy but for all the right reasons:

"....If the barbarians were to burst in now, I know, I would die in my bed as stupid and ignorant as a baby. And even more apposite would it be if I were caught in the pantry downstairs with a spo

Martin Luther King Jr.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
Martin Luther King Jr., Letter from the Birmingham Jail

Mark Mathabane
“Voracious reading was like an anesthesia, numbing me to the harsh life around me.”
Mark Mathabane, Kaffir Boy: An Autobiography

Alfred Tennyson
“Be near me when my light is low,
When the blood creeps, and the nerves prick
And tingle; and the heart is sick,
And all the wheels of Being slow.

Be near me when the sensuous frame
Is rack'd with pangs that conquer trust;
And Time, a maniac scattering dust,
And Life, a fury slinging flame.

Be near me when my faith is dry,
And men the flies of latter spring,
That lay their eggs, and sting and sing
And weave their petty cells and die.

Be near me when I fade away,
To point the term of human strife,
And on the low dark verge of life
The twilight of eternal day.”
Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam

John Steinbeck
“I am a little man and this is a little town, but there must be a spark in little men that can burst into flame.”
John Steinbeck, The Moon Is Down

Isaac Asimov
“Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right.”
Isaac Asimov, Foundation
