Is there a cause you would be willing to die for?
(I’m not really sure why this is in the politics section of the book, but there ya go.)
Hmm. Cause? An inanimate thing, an idea, a belief…? Maybe in my late teens/early twenties, when I cared more (HAH!)… but now? For a cause? No. I can’t say that there is. There are people I would take a bullet for, go into a burning building for, or otherwise throw myself in harm’s way for… but I can’t truly say there’s a cause I’d die for. Yes, there are important causes I support – woman’s rights, civil rights, human rights… and I can see if I were who I am, I would have gone, on, say, the Freedom Rides, or marched in Selma, Alabama, or possibly would have been jailed/beaten for being a Suffragette. And I might have died in any one of those events, because people did die. But I’d go into something like that thinking I could make a difference, not die. Does that make sense….?
