After what we’ve been through it would be very easy to give up, to lose hope. But not here, not today. This is more than a ship, Chief, this is an act of faith. It is proof that despite all we’ve lost we keep trying and we will get through this, all of us, together. I promise.
For so long, all I wanted was for you to love me, to accept me. I thought it was my honor I wanted, but really, I was just trying to please you. You, my father, who banished me just for talking out of turn. My father, who challenged me, a thirteen-year-old boy, to an Agni Kai. How could you possibly justify a duel with a child?
