“We are the rare exception to the usual rule, the if and the but and the because to the can’t and the won’t and the why that bury them and hold their hearts captive. We are the bolt cutters and lock picks to the chains and handcuffs that threaten our own. They are the rain jackets and rubber boots, the giant umbrellas and newspapers held tightly above their head, a pyramid of protection against the water droplets they try to time their run between. Not we.
