“I hate to admit it, but sometimes I had imagined what it would be like to march into battle, or carry out a mission in the face of danger. I’m not sure if these fantasies come from the hours of action movies I’ve watched with Pete or if I have some sort of innate need to save the helpless (or “play the pinche martyr” like Luz said). But, in my fantasies, I’ve never imagined an outcome such as this. In my mind, my friends and I would march in like victors, strong and defiant, not timid and pathetic. And there was always some sort of theme music, something like “Seven Nation Army” by the White Stripes.
There was never, however, any theme music.”
-Maya Price, on the reality of going into battle.
