I wouldn’t be able to breathe. Worse, I wouldn’t be able to watch our great leader on the screen.

Sometimes, I wonder if what we’re doing is right, but it is. Our contribution isn’t merely based on the rules of our society. This is how we get by. What we perceive as normal is all we have, and we have to be somewhat normal in order to survive. That is for whom I’m working so hard. For those who are less fortunate. Without my help, the help of our facilities, these unfortunates would be shunned, put away, left in the streets.

It’s not the rules of a society or a state that justifies what is or isn’t normal.

She will be happier, because she will have no bandages. And her inner beauty will be visible through the eyes of those who behold. I hope.
