Lawyer, reader, writer, performer. Just love listening to books and talking about it!
I do love poetry but I don't give it the time I should because I'd rather have a story. This is a story in poetry, a powerful, sometimes difficult to face, sweet, thought filled, poetic stream by a girl whose young life was a study in opposites, and who believes in opposites coming together some day. I do, too. Thank you Jaqueline with a J and a Q for inspiring me to keep on believing and for taking me through your journey with such grace.
I'm ashamed to say that I had no idea about this country, about this war, this violence, these people, this particular hope for a better future. I am so glad I listened to this story about a girl who kept on surviving.
