I was taken from my home, arrested, and interrogated for hours. And for what? For speaking out against the cruelty around me and for standing against injustices! My words hurt only those who abuse their power and influence. Now the guards come to take me in front of the magistrates; they’ll want me to recant. But if my words are found to be illegal, it is the law that is wrong, not I. Whatever the consequences, I will not capitulate, even if mine is the only voice in this wilderness.
