The power in this! The heartache and agony of survival in the first half, then that cry of "no!" that inspires change and almost a revolution, for one's dignity, worth and rights. Heroes indeed. That image of trying your darn hardest to swim above, to be able to help those still drowning, that takes immense courage and inner strength, to persist in the face of so many things trying to silence you, and to help others make it to the top. To the point where they see there is a shore.
