56. You are a romantic, just like me
Edited on Wed Dec-29-04 03:48 AM by tavalon
When I was 14 (about a million years ago, it seems) I read The Diary of Anne Frank. I was a raging idealist back then and I knew that had I been in Germany (or any surrounding country) during Hitler's reign that I would have done the right thing. Little did I know that a couple of decades later, I would be faced with a somewhat similar circumstance. I spent the first year (2001 for me) realizing that it's hard to see so clearly when one's nose is pressed against the glass rather than having the clarity of history's distance. Luckily, it's hard but not impossible and I know now what is to be done and I am doing it.

It is a painful but noble time. I wholeheartedly agree, Will.

Edit: for bad spelling. Screw the grammar
