An Inch

"Our integrity sells for so little, but it is all we really have. It is the very last inch of us. But within that inch...we are free. I remember how the meaning of words began to change, I remember how "different" became dangerous. I still don't understand it why they hate us so much. It seems strange that my life should end in such a terrible place. But for three years, I had roses and apologized to no one. I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch...but one...An inch, it is small and it is fragile..and it is the only thing, in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away, we must never let them take it from us."

-Valerie, from V For Vendetta
