"It was a while on the road that I realized something that seemed very important to me. I realized that I had spent most of my life as a slave to something. I grew up as an emotional slave to the rotten kids in school, to my parents' bitter fights. then, after derek came along, I became a slave to something else: I became a slave to my own hatred and rage. It was on the road with the runaways that I came to the conclusion that all of that was finally behind me. I was free to do whatever I wanted. I would never be a slave to anything again."
