My mind was going a mile a minute. But it wasn't fear going through my mind as I thought it would be, it was everything
else. How glorious it will be as a liberator. Having broke "the rules"
to do what I know is right. Maybe even getting arrested, and being a political

Which weighs more importance than anything else.
