Book Exerpt | Solidarity 

She stood there, tears in her eyes; her hand in a glove, a tomato crushed atop her finger due to a burn with hot rice. She didn’t exactly reach out to me, but I reached for her and rested my turned head, flat on her shoulder and felt her do the same to me. And I held her there; silence surrounded the kitchen. I held her there, chest to chest. Strong woman to strong woman; each with different backgrounds, but with shared grace, shared loved and shared solidarity. 
All the tears and all the cries, all the sorrow and all the pain. The utter importance of letting pain and feelings out; cleansing our hands and our feet, embracing this beautiful forty year age difference friendship at every instance, at every page and at every time. 
There simply is no greater love.
