Alan’s Recent Updates

“You can live as a ghost, waiting for death to come, or you can dance.”
Alan Gratz, Refugee

“If I had known what the next six years of my life were going to be like, I would have eaten more. I wouldn't have complained about brushing my teeth, or taking a bath, or going to bed at eight o'clock every night. I would have played more. Laughed more. I would have hugged my parents and told them I loved them. But I was ten years old, and I had no idea of the nightmare that was to come. None of us did.”
Alan Gratz, Prisoner B-3087

“All my life, I kept waiting for things to get better. For the bright promise of mañana. But a funny thing happened while I was waiting for the world to change, Chabele: It didn't. Because I didn't change it.”
Alan Gratz, Refugee
