What Else She Said

I said, 'Children, I have to go, this is very important in my life.' And when I got on the bus, I didn't have a sense of regret about my kids being left behind, but I had such value for myself, that I had the brains to be identified with this, because I wanted to be identified, I wanted to speak out, I wanted the feeling that my voice would be heard amongst thousands. And I was convinced, from that day on, that you can't sit and say you're against something. You have to be willing to take part in the activity and you have to want to be counted.
