I do not know why I am remembering this scene from the movie 'V for Vendetta', you might have watched it. The scene is when V makes a mockup prison for EVY where she gets this little letter written by a fellow prisoner, living across the cell.. you can read the letter here..http://www.shadowgalaxy.
but these words echo in my mind for you.. excerpt here:
"I shall die here. Every last inch of me shall perish. Except one.
An inch. It's small and it's fragile and it's the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it, or sell it, or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.
I don't know who you are. Or whether you're a man or a woman. I may never see you or cry with you or get drunk with you. But I love you. I hope that you escape this place. I hope that the world turns and that things get better, and that one day people have roses again."
