Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.


"I was terrified for my parents, but also angry at them. I hated seeing them running and hiding. I wanted to forget my father running like a thief up the stairs, fork, knife, and plate in hand, or hiding under the table. I hated that they, the adults, were as powerless as I was."
           --Ruth Jacobsen, Rescued Images: Memories of a Childhood in Hiding. (Mikaya, 2001)
