As If by God's Hand

"... Once in an age the forces of darkness align to bend the arc of history.

"And once in an age, the arc of history bends around the wheel of one committed person who, acting from his or her own virtuous interests, changes the course of humanity: the child who raises the flag above the barricades, the mother who thrusts the picture of her murdered child before the dead eyes of the tyrant, the girl who refuses to deny her love for God even while her flesh burns at the stake—individuals who grip a shred of civilization with both hands and will not give it up ..."
From The Diary of Neuchar de Merlner, Europa, 2112
Verse 34: Nova Conta, Section 3
Comme Si Dans les Mains de Dieu (As If by God’s Hand)
