„I spent two and half years at this school scared to death that somene would find out about me, terrified what that would mean. Do you have any idea how that feels? Do you? But I'm not that same kid anymore. And it doesn't surprise me one bit that you're not willing to stand up to the bigots and the other small minds in this community. You never have. But I will. There are other kids like me out there. And until they feel safe being who they are, then I'll gladly take one for the team, flaunt it as you so eloquently put it last year.”
