Dear Zat,

Wow, you always manage to make me think! Such hard work — I’ve been out of school too long!

I kept thinking of the Shakespearean quote, reading your article: A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.

It’s exhausting, being a coward! I am exhausted, dying constantly! I would like to live a bit longer, please!
