You've made it this far, might as well see it to the end. When I feel like that, my biggest motivator isn't my loved ones or things I want to accomplish. It's spite. Plain, unrefined spite for everyone who's ever wanted to see me dead. Spite kept Rockefeller alive through a ton of stolen hearts to keep kicking the poor, expropriate that and use it against them. Your life doesn't have to be worth shit, nobody's life is worth anything but the honor they cultivate, and honor still won't stop a bullet or a spear when the time comes. Just live it because you've got it, and because Hel is a fucking boring place to be.

Besides, I'd be pretty upset if I heard you bit it.

Trayvon is actually a beautiful name and I never even thought about how his parents must have felt when they watched it turned into the most horrific verb in the entire English language.

My own kid was Christophered. I don't know what that means.

It means his thread ran out. It's not fair or right, and not everyone gets a skein of the same length. You did the best that you could, and that's all anyone could expect of you. Trayvon's parents did too. Sometimes it's just not enough. I wasn't able to do enough to save any of the people I lost. I just hope I live long enough to make them proud of me.
