Words rich in meaning can be cheap in sound effects.
Happiness is a word that has fallen from the moon, she does not know about reasons and does not care about effects.
Children of Blood and Bone was written during a time where I kept turning on the news and seeing stories of unarmed black men, women, and children being shot by the police. I felt afraid and angry and helpless, but this book was the one thing that made me feel like I could do something about it. I told myself that if just one person could read it and have their hearts or minds changed, then I would've done something meaningful against a problem that often feels so much bigger than myself.
The long term effect of lies are worse than the short term embarrassment that come from facing the truth.
Happy is he who can trace effects to their causes.
