Dave Eggers

It was no consolation to say their long ordeal was ended. It was not ended for us and ó perhaps I should speak for myself ó their memory was already turning to stone in my mind. In my whole life I have never felt such a weight of pure bitterness, helpless anger in utter defeat, outraged love and hope, as hung over us all in that room ó or did we breathe it out of ourselves?
