“This, however, is going to be a dark ride that I am penning and it should, if you are not a total narcissist, will raise your blood pressure to new heights and yet, by the end of the story, have you standing on your feet clapping and saying, hell yeah, you go girl, as tears stream down your face.” – Derek Zeller in A Simple Question: A Complicated Answer – The Interview.

“When you are born, you sign a social contract that says you are going to be good to each other…, We as a society, men and women, need to heal each other, we need to stand with each other, we need to be a unit, we need to start saying, ‘no, it’s not happening.’ It takes a village, it takes a tribe – we need to open up and I’m telling you, when we do – it’s a waterfall of goodness.” – Zeller
