"I am not going to die, I'm going home like a shooting star."
- Sojourner Truth,
former slave, women’s rights activist, abolitionist, and great orator who passed away on this day in 1883
So I love shooting stars. I tend to think when they happen that in fact it is just for me. Like a flower God picks for me or something. At least now my self-centeredness does occasionally revolve around another person. When I saw this quote, before it actually sank in the depth and pain of it, my first thought was: Oh, how sad, Kaiya hasn't seen a shooting star yet. Someday she will. And I will tell her that God made that just for her. Because he did.
