She even begins to point at TRAGEDY with her left thumb from time to time to
emphasize certain words. “Ideas aren't weapons! We can't just shove our ideas at
others and dismiss their ideas as nonsense. Pointing fingers are the ugliest

emerges as a pattern. Still, overall there are not a large number of errors. I do not

gunshot wounds, look like twenty-two caliber, one between the eyes, the other
