We weren't looking for freedom or peace or even love. That was just it, we'd already found it. It was the first time in our lives when we viscerally understood---what we needed was right in front of us; I guess it had been with us all along. Such a simple concept, but knowing was like breathing for the first time. We had to run.
It wasn't about the end, not about where we were going. It was about exactly where we were.
We had already arrived.
