"She came from a background where nothing was ever good enough. And that was something that weighed heavy on her. But in our house together, it was a sense of just trying stuff and allowing each other to fail and to be excited about things. That was liberating for her. It was exciting to see her grow and both of us grow and change together. But that’s also the hard part: growing without growing apart or changing without it scaring the other person. I still find myself having conversations with her in my mind. Rehashing old arguments and defending myself against the things she said about me." - Her (2013)
Since the Dark Days our great nation has known only peace. Ours is an elegant system, we see to nourish and protect. Your districts are the body, the Capitol is the beating heart. Your hard work feeds us, and in return we feed and protect you. But if you resist the system you starve yourself; if you fight against it, it is you who will bleed. I know you will stand with me, with us, with all of us. Together; as one.
