“Josie

Now, I have never understood all that
he’s-my-other-half
soul mate stuff
or when people sometimes talk about
having an empty pace inside
or that they’re missing pieces or something.
But then
he walked over
and fit himself
right into my puzzle.

Nicolette

It never occurred to me I couldn’t change
the way things are
whenever I wanted to.
I mean, I’ve always been the one calling the shots…

Avivia

He has a way of sliding out of trouble,
plays the innocent really well.
Grown-ups seem to think he’s such a good boy.
They are so wrong.
This boy gets any girl he wants.
Why does he want me? ”
Tanya Lee Stone, A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl

“What is courage? What is strength? Perhaps it is ready to fight for your nation even when your nation isn't ready to fight for you.”
Tanya Lee Stone, Courage Has No Color: The True Story of the Triple Nickles, America's First Black Paratroopers
