“I drank again from the water bottle and its garish sleeve. Plain water to give me plain courage. For it was time to be honest with myself. To survive all the shame this world will throw at you, you have to hold yourself tall, look your accuser straight in the eye. Even if it’s your own face looking back at you.” -Nalo Hopkinson from The New Moon’s Arms
