I saw this movie years ago and this always stuck with me. In the movie V for Vendetta, one of the main characters, Evey, is imprisoned and she reads a letter that a woman named Valerie, a fellow prisoner had left behind. I won’t ruin it for you if you’ve never seen it, so I won’t say anymore about the plot.
The point is that she says something in the letter that I feel is something I would say to the people who read my blog. Not the very beginning about dying, but the rest. I hope you’ll see what I mean. So I’ll just quote it here:
“I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must NEVER let them take it from us. I hope that whoever you are, you escape this place. I hope that the worlds turns, and that things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. Valerie.”
That’s for you guys. Just change my name with Valerie’s at the end. 🙂
