"You should have seen my mother - when I asked if we could visit each other's religion. She had tears. She never has tears. It's like all the tears were cried out of her a long time ago - in the camps. She said, "Oh Lanie - imagine if everyone visited other religious services. There wouldn't be so much hate."
(They light the candles)
"Do you know what this means, Dorrie? We're spirit sisters. So if anything ever happens to one of us, we have to be there for each other. And if we disappear, we have to look for each other, okay?"
"What are you talking about? That stuff can't happen here. We are the land of the free and the brave."
"Do you have a guardian angel, Dorrie"
I do, Lanie. You're my guardian angel."
In memory of Lanie, April 21 - September 11, 2001. Godspeed Lanie, you light my way.
