"Hope" PrologueAt a time in everyone's life, the thought about living in a world free of wars, hatefulness, and sadness occupies the mind. For some people, the thought beckons them for only a mere five minutes, and others, their whole life.
Those who think about such things are nothing but fools. There is no such thing as a world free of anything. The world is what it is, and there is no way to change it. One person can't revolutionize an entire planet much less a country on their own─ At least I know that now.

She couldn't escape even if she tried.
Her shadow reflected off the solid glass walls,
Back bent in endless despair.
When will someone save me? She asked.
