I used to look at homeless peopleand try to imagine what they had once looked like. It's not easy. Beneath the grime and degradation is a face once adored by someone. It's a truth that tricks the eye; our glances slide away. But something happened to ruin that life, to strip it bare; and it was something small, something that but for the grace of God could take us, too.
Ch. 2

Too small. As if being a greaseball lawyer's input organiser and easy lay was bigger. But the size of a life is how you feel about it.

In my first year I was taught about the slide rule. They said, "The slide rule is important. Without it you can do nothing. The slide rule is the modern weapon of efficiency. With the slide rule you can get from here to the stars. Buy it, use it Ė your slide rule!" Within one year it was, "Burn the slide rule. The calculator can add up with none of this f**king sliding the shit around and working out where that bit in the middle goes. Smash it over your head."

Eddie Izzard

James MacDonald

As a community, youíve inspired us, Newtown. In the face of indescribable violence, in the face of unconscionable evil, youíve looked out for each other. Youíve cared for one another. And youíve loved one another. This is how Newtown will be remembered, and with time and Godís grace, that love will see you through.
But we as a nation, we are left with some hard questions.
