    “If it’s magic, then why can’t it be everlasting, like the sun that always shines, like the poets in this rhyme, like the galaxies in time. If it’s pleasing then why can’t it be never leaving, like the day that never fails, like on seashores there are shells, like the ...

    “Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.” Haile Selassie “Every woman is a queen, and we all have ...
